Help us test the ConnectCard!

Very soon Port Authority’s new ConnectCard fare payment system will revolutionize the way you travel. But before we can launch it, we need riders like you to help us test it.

If you’re a current Port Authority rider and pay your fare with a monthly/weekly pass, tickets or cash, you can be one of the first customers to try the new ConnectCard smart card.

It’s easy. Just visit to fill our recruitment questionnaire by June 8. We’ll notify you early this summer if you are selected to participate in the test program, which will run from mid-August through mid-October.* Test program participants will have the chance to win a month of free rides!

*Participants will be required to pay for their own fares during the course of the test period. Port Authority will not be providing free fare or reimbursing fares as part of the test program.
