Moving toward One Metro New York

OMNY's phased approach

Getting started

May 2019

Tap your own contactless card or smart device at select subway stations and on all Staten Island MTA buses. OMNY will support a full-fare, pay-per-ride option first, with free transfers at OMNY-enabled subway stations and bus routes. Additional fare options will be available during future phases of the rollout, such as weekly passes, monthly passes, reduced fares, student fares, and more. MetroCard will remain in place until OMNY is available everywhere.

Subway and bus expansion

late 2020

We will continue rolling out OMNY to all bus routes, subway stations, and Staten Island Railway locations. Once this is complete, you will be able to tap and go throughout New York City.

Commuter rail expansion

early 2021

We will expand OMNY to Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North Railroad. Once this is complete, OMNY will be your passport to the New York region, across subway, bus, and commuter rail.

OMNY rollout complete

by 2023

In 2020, we will enable mobile ticketing in the OMNY app. In 2021, we will introduce the OMNY Card – a contactless transit card – that you will find at retail locations throughout the New York region. In 2022, we will install OMNY vending machines at subway and commuter rail stations. In 2023, we will say goodbye to MetroCard. You will always be able to pay with cash at retail locations and vending machines.
