In March 2019, Apple announced that people would be able to use Apple Pay to pay for rides at all New York City subway stations by October 2020.
According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, which cites Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) officials, the OMNY payment system will be delayed by about two months.
The OMNY system is currently available in about half of NYC’s subway stations.
However, OMNY won’t support discounted 7-day and 30-day passes until early 2021, so a lot of folks will likely continue to use MetroCards, which will remain functional until 2023.
The MTA also believes that pay-per-ride trips could increase in popularity as some workers won’t go to the office as often as they did before.
