OMNY Implementation/MetroCard Retirement Discussion Thread Bus Division

Recommended Posts

15 hours ago, Mpn4179 said:

All buses in the Bronx Division have OMNY Readers installed, and ready to go online starting today (October 13).

Please be advised that some of WF 40 footers (mostly the C40LF) have only one OMNY Reader installed at the front and none at the rear door. IMO the reason for that is to meet the deadline for the Bronx. I’m sure they’ll install the second reader later on. Don’t be surprised if they follow suit with Brooklyn and Queens’ 40 footers. If they install two OMNY Readers, great; if they install only one, not a big deal at this time. They will install the second one when they’re good and ready. As long as they meet their deadline, then it’s fine.

* For those who don’t know what IMO means it’s “In My Opinion “. I put that in this post due to the fact that their is no factual reasons for the single OMNY Readers in some of the 40 footers in WF at this time. This is just based on observation.

Some C40LF’s from CP also have the one OMNY base in the front of the bus.

I was on the M15 SBS today and only the OMNY reader by the front door was working, all others said “use other door” or something like that, like on local routes. I’m not sure if the readers were broken or if the firebox was somehow set incorrectly so that it thought it was a local route with front door boarding.

Did you happen to ride 6144 on the M15 SBS? Rode it yesterday and had to tap up front.

I wasn't paying close enough attention to the number, sorry! But very likely (or else there are multiple broken buses lol)

Al is a goddam legend within NYCT and just one heck of a guy 🤣 Gonna be a sad day when he leaves along with the MetroCard in 2023 (he's been very explicit about it), so enjoy his wisecracks while you can!

If anyone wonders how eagle team checks the fare for contactless, they have a special scanner that allows them to scan your card, phone, or watch. It's probably in rushed beta form, but soon enough they'll be able to check as soon as possible.

I believe 199 also has a base at the rear doors.

On a B17 bus this past Sunday. Was a reader. 

It could of been a transfer from Manhattanville or West Farms. Right now East New York has started receiving bases for OMNY.  Bases are coming to the Brooklyn Division & Queens Division at this time.

I think it was one of the newer buses.
