Goodbye MetroCards, Make Room for OMNY

BARUCH COLLEGE–The Metropolitan Transit Authority announced it will phase out the MetroCard payment system and permanently switch to the recently developed One Metro New York payment system.

Starting in 2023, the MTA will begin replacing the decades-old MetroCard machines with OMNY vending machines. The MetroCard’s complete removal is expected to be complete by the end of next year. Starting 2024, OMNY payment will be mandatory at all MTA subway stations.
