Step 2: Calculate How Many MetroCards You Need


Example School B:
 

  • Add numbers in Assigned MetroCard and Assigned 55555555 columns
  • Subtract total from number in Shipped Metrocard column
  • Result is the number of cards needed
  • You will identify an additional amount to handle replacement cards in Step 3

Card Type # Assigned + # Assigned 5555555 Total Deducted From Total Shipped # of Cards Required
E1: K-6 Full Fare 2 + 43 45 22 -23
E5: K-6 SE 0 + 31 31 1 -30
H1: 7-12 Full Fare 6 + 17 23 3 -21
H5: 7-12 SE 0 + 26 26 2 -24
H2: K-12 Half Fare 11 + 62 62 6 -56

Based on the example above, the inventory shows that School B does not have an adequate supply of MetroCards on hand for distribution and needs to request a shipment.
