OMNY – New Fare Payment System from MTA

May 15, 2019

    ⭐MTA is beginning the rollout of the new fare payment system, called OMNY!⭐

    Here’s what you need to know 👇👇

    • Starting May 31, you’ll be able to use your contactless credit, debit, or reloadable prepaid card, or your mobile phone or wearable, to board all Staten Island buses and the 4 5 6 lines between Grand Central-42 Street and Atlantic Av-Barclays Ctr. 

    • OMNY will only be available on a full-fare, pay-per-ride basis until every subway station, bus route, and the Staten Island Railway is outfitted with this new technology. Until then, you can keep using MetroCard. 

    • OMNY honors the same free transfers between subway stations and buses as MetroCard, as long as those locations are OMNY-enabled. If you plan to transfer at locations that aren’t OMNY-enabled, you should continue using MetroCard.

    • Although you won’t be able to use cash for OMNY in the beginning, cash will always be an option to access MTA services.

    • You can still use MetroCard until OMNY is rolled out system-wide.
