The days of missing the train while waiting in an insufferably long MetroCard line could be over.

The MTA announced Thursday that it will start allowing straphangers to buy their monthly MetroCard on-line. After sending an application, riders will receive a MetroCard that automatically refills by deducting a user’s credit card.

The system has been available since 2006 for those who buy Pay-Per-Ride MetroCards, with more than 16,000 subscribers, according to the MTA.

To apply, go to www.easypaymetrocard.com.
