NYC’s push for citywide contactless transit payment is delayed by COVID-19

Last May, New York City’s Metro Transit Authority opened out the first contactless payment systems at select subway station turnstiles. The systemwide rollout was set to be completed at all subway stops and buses this October. Like so many things in this life, however, COVID-19 put a damper on those plans.
OMNY — One Metro New York — has been delayed, now expected to be completed by December. The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news, notes the unfortunate timing of a delay on a technology that could help riders touch one fewer thing on the public transit petri dish.
