8. Discounted AirTrain Passes

One of the little known secrets of the AirTrain is the 10 pass Metrocard that offers 50% off the normal $5 rate. The 10-pass Metrocard costs just $25 (plus the $1 new Metrocard fee which can’t be avoided). Though most of the reports say it only lasts 6 months from time of first use, we’ve found that it actually expires after one year. Pro tip: You can only buy these 10 passes at the Metrocard machines at the AirTrain stations, not at regular machines.
