Metro card advice

We are staying for 12 days and going to get the 7 day metro card. For the remaining days is it worth getting another 7 days or just topping the cards up , which will be the better value ?

I would get another unlimited card as the break even point is 13 trips

You need one per person

Agree. Just "add time" to the original card...an additional 7 days. So you are "topping off" your original card with "time" vs "value."

Track how often you use it the first 5 days and if you find you used it more than 13 times in 5 days...get it again. I'm sure you will use it more than the break even point but you never know.

Frosty, above gave the best answer. You do not need to decide this in advance.
