NYC Transit Finishes Deploying NFC Fare Collection
The MTA today announced that it has completed deployment of OMNY readers system-wide. This means that all 472 subway stations and 5,800 city buses in New York City now accept fare payment by tapping an NFC-equipped phone or smart device with any standard digital Wallet set up. OMNY supports Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay, and Fitbit Pay, and payment cards from Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. Customers can also use a plastic debit or credit card that includes a contactless (tap) chip. Using OMNY charges the standard fare; there are no extra fees compared to using a MetroCard. MetroCards will be phased out in 2023. The MTA will also launch an OMNY app and start selling dedicated OMNY cards in 2021.
