metroPCS wireless service has begun an advertising campaign that includes branded Metrocards.

Beginning on Tuesday, February 17, the company will be launching a fun and unique Metro Card campaign, selling colorful purple MetroPCS reusable Metro Cards at three Bronx locations, Third Avenue and 149th Station (2/5), Fordham Road and Grand Concourse Station (B/D), and Fordham Road and Jerome Avenue Station (4).

In addition to those three stations mentioned above, the metroPCS Metrocard is supposedly available at several other New York City subway stations, listed below. I can verify that as of this morning, the card is available at MVM #0012 at 125 Street (A/B/C/D).

  • 125 2/3
  • 125 and St. Nicholas A/B/C/D
  • 125¬†and Lex 4/5/6
  • Jamaica Center
  • 74th and Broadway
  • 82nd Street- Jackson Heights
  • DeKalb Avenue
  • Hoyt Street – Fulton St. 2/3
  • Flatbush Avenue – Brooklyn College.

Remember, out of the 12 stations listed, I’ve only verified one of them.

Good luck!

Later that morning, the website said the problem was resolved:

Then the problem came back again! I don’t have a screenshot of that.

Finally, on Tuesday the problem was resolved and an apology issued:
