OMNY rollout at a glance
Subway and bus rollout
2019 to 2020
First, we launched a public pilot at select subway stations and buses. Then, we expanded to all remaining subway stations and buses across the five boroughs over the course of one year. Today, you can tap and go throughout New York City using your own contactless card or smart device.
Enhanced digital experience
2020 to 2021
As the subway and bus rollout took place, we were working hard to optimize your digital experience with OMNY. We are excited to deliver improvements to the OMNY website and launch the new OMNY mobile app beginning in 2021.
Expanded fare options
2021 to 2022
In the coming months, we plan to support expanded fare options, including reduced fares, student fares, and special programs, across subway, bus, paratransit, and commuter rail. We will also launch the OMNY card, install new vending machines, and more. These efforts will give you additional flexibility and choice – making it simple and easy to make fare payments across modes of transportation.
OMNY rollout completion
The rollout of OMNY will occur in phases, and MetroCard will remain in place until OMNY is available everywhere for everyone.
