Last time I was there, it was about $1.50 per token.  But once on the
subway, you didn't pay extra for more distant destinations or transfers as
long as you didn't leave the subway system.  Buses I think will take exact
change if you have it, but also take tokens.  Subways have to have tokens,
but most stations have a place where you can buy them.
This may have changed in the last few months.

The Staten Island ferry is still a bargain.
