MTA Issues Spanish-Language MetroCard Advertising Campaign

You've probably noticed ads on your MetroCard before, but for the first time you'll notice it in Spanish. That's because a print run of 250,000 MetroCards in Spanish was purchased by the immigration law firm Youman, Madeo & Fasano LLP. The print campaign uses two versions with a run of 125,000 cards for each. One version advertises the law firm and its locations, and the other promotes a television show on immigration issues that the law firm produces.

As part of the plan to get more residents to visit and eventually settle in the Jamaica Bay and the Rockaway Peninsula areas, Moses also went ahead with plans to build the Marine Parkway Bridge.
