NICE buses & metrocards-
I'm kind of confused how the agreement works where NICE buses can take unlimited metrocards.
Given that is the case, does NICE tally the swipes used, and bill the MTA for $$$? Or does NICE soley collect money from the tax base of the areas it serves, and fares are just collected and sent right back to Nassau/Albany/etc?
I guess Bee-Line in Westchester operates the same way... but still is strange to me as I didn't think a lot of state money went into those agencies.
