One Metro New York (OMNY)
OMNY is MTA’s new contactless fare payment system that will eventually replace the MetroCard. With OMNY, you can use your own contactless card or smart device to pay your fare.
This new system is being rolled out in phases. All bus routes, subway stations, and Staten Island Railway locations are now equipped with OMNY.
OMNY currently supports a full-fare, pay-per-ride option for now, including free transfers. Additional fare options will be available during future phases of the rollout, including reduced fares, student fares, special programs, and more. Until then, you can keep using your MetroCard.

OMNY Fare Capping
On February 28, 2022, the MTA will launch a pilot fare capping program for OMNY users. With this pilot program, you will always pay the lowest fare each week if you use OMNY, no matter how many trips you take. You will not have to pay upfront for an unlimited 7-Day MetroCard.
The pilot program will initially be available for full-fare trips on New York City subways and local buses. The program would apply only to trips taken using the OMNY contactless fare payment system. You must use the same contactless bank card, smart device, or OMNY card for each trip.
You will automatically receive free, unlimited rides for the rest of the week once you have paid $33 in fares, the same as taking 12 trips during a seven-day period. The seven-day period begins at 12 AM on Mondays and end at 11:59 PM on Sundays during this pilot program.
