New Yorkers looking to get a municipal identification card may also get season passes to places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

City Hall says it wants some of the city’s most prominent cultural institutions to offer benefits, like memberships or discounted tickets to those who do not have a driver’s license or other official identification.

If approved, New York will join other cities in loading perks into identity cards as a way to broaden their appeal.

San Francisco offers discounts at the city’s golf courses, museums and participating restaurants.

In New Haven, ID cards are set to be reloadable for downtown parking and shopping.
