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, or with an OMNY card in the coming weeks.
Enhanced digital experience
2020 to 2021
As the subway and bus rollout took place, we focused on optimizing your digital experience with OMNY. We have delivered improvements to the OMNY website beginning in 2021, including the ability to reload OMNY cards online. More enhancements, features, and services are coming in the months ahead.
Expanded fare options
2021 to 2022
In the coming weeks, you will be able to tap and go with an OMNY card. 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 continue to expand OMNY card availability to additional retail locations throughout the region, install new vending machines throughout the system, and more, as the system rollout continues. With this variety of options, you will have flexibility and choice – making it simple and easy to make fare payments in advance or on the move.
OMNY rollout completion
The rollout of OMNY will occur in phases, and existing fare payment options will remain in place until OMNY is available everywhere for everyone.
