OMNY rollout at a glance

1
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.

2
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.

3
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

by 2023

The rollout of OMNY will occur in phases, and MetroCard will remain in place until OMNY is available everywhere for everyone.
