MTA New York City Transit (NYCT) last week activated its One Metro New York (OMNY) contactless fare payment system at all subway stations in the Bronx, New York. 

More than 60 percent of all subway stations are now equipped with OMNY, with 2,820 OMNY readers systemwide, NYCT officials said in a press release.

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) now is installing OMNY readers on the 2 and 5 lines to Flatbush Avenue-Brooklyn College Station, the 3 and 4 lines to New Lots Avenue Station and on stations along the Queens Boulevard line.

All subway stations in New York City are expected to have the OMNY readers installed by year's end, agency officials said.
