OMNY Implementation/Metro-Card Retirement Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

When will they start doing Queens local buses, both TA and BC ? For inter-modal passengers, OMNY is not of much use at this point.

OMNY bases are currently being installed on College Point buses. No word yet on Queens NYCT buses.  
 

OMNY bases and readers are being installed on NYCT stations in Queens and Brooklyn  currently.

Question what is TA and BC.   Is TA (Transit Authority) and BC (British Columbia Canada)?

TA is routes operated by the New York City Transit Authority. BC is MTA Bus Company, taking over routes formerly operated by private bus operators.

Interesting tweet from the NYCT Twitter account earlier today....is this hinting at fare capping already happening or about to be introduced once it's available system wide?

It doesn't exist now, but yes, the payment system does have the capability of capping what you pay. Depends on what the (MTA) wants to do. For now, it's pay-per-ride only until they decide on what they want to do in terms of passes, etc.

Has anyone seen an announcement on when OMNY cards will be available?

Wikipedia says Prepaid OMNY car in Feb 2021 and OMNY vending machines in March 2022.

An entire year just for vending machines? Why?

Shit needs to work at five 9s of reliability in the relatively crap conditions of your average subway station.

Locally, the local light rail system decided they could cheap out and buy normal instead of transit rated escalators, and then they proceeded to break so often that they are now replacing all of them four years later.
