The cards were created by Spotify and have images of Bowie’s iconic looks. According to the MTA, they printed 250,000 in total, and they can be purchased at Bleecker Street and Broadway-Lafayette stations. There are five versions of the card and cost $6.50 per card because they have a two ride minimum.
Please note, the 5 designs will be dispensed randomly at station booths and MetroCard Vending Machines. We will be sure to let you know when they run out. pic.twitter.com/9jwqJxtVXe
