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.

there is a split. I am unsure what that is.

Nassau & albany does fund NICE buses as well. It has decreased in funding which caused the drama which resulted from changing it from MTA to NICE as the bus operator for Nassau
