Become an OMNY card retailer

MTA riders are switching from MetroCard to the OMNY card. You should too.

MetroCard is going away and OMNY is taking its place as the way to pay subway and bus fares. Start selling OMNY cards to enjoy benefits like:

  • No upfront payments, unlike with MetroCard
  • Commission on each sale
  • Commission on each reload, even if the card was bought somewhere else
  • Your business listed on the OMNY retail locator, which is advertised in subways and buses
  • Official in-store advertising materials provided upon request
  • Potential to increase foot traffic and sales

Your customers get a better deal with OMNY than with a 7-Day MetroCard. With the OMNY fare cap, customers will never pay more than $34 in a 7-day period. OMNY card users get to keep any funds they don’t use, unlike 7-Day MetroCard users.

Serve your customers and support your New York community with the OMNY card today.

How to apply

There is no cost for your store to participate. All you need is an internet connection and a barcode scanner, which can be provided if you don’t have one.
