Samsung Pay now available at the NYC mass transit system

Monday 3 June 2019 | 09:42 AM CET

New Yorkers have been provided with the ability to use Samsung Pay to pay for their subway and bus rides using the mobile payments service.

According to SamMobile, Samsung confirmed that the mobile payment system supports the New York MTA’s new OMNY (One Metro New York) contactless fare payment system. Currently, OMNY is available on select routes and stations, with plans for expansion.

New Yorkers will not need to carry around a MetroCard or wait in line to buy a new card. They can use Samsung Pay at the turnstile or the bus terminal to pay. The service will work on all Samsung Pay enabled phones (Galaxy S6 and up) as well as wearable devices like the Gear S2, Gear S3, Gear Fit 2, Gear Sport, Galaxy Watch, and the Galaxy Watch Active.

OMNY payment system is also extended to services like Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Fitbit Pay.
