I was wondering how do people get a free ride with an empty-fare Metrocard?
Please explain in detail if you can or private message me. Thanks.

metrocards are very sensitive, it all has to do with how you bend a specific part of the card.
This is sort of a smart card system kinda like The Octopus in HK?
^ Not quite as advanced.

Its a thin plastic card with a magnetic strip that is used as a fare card. You put money on the card, and swipe it at the turnstiles. Its the only fare method on the NYC subway. It can also be used on NYC buses, the PATH subway, and certain other transit systems.
