Getting around the city that never sleeps is about to get a little easier for Samsung Pay users. Starting today, millions of riders on New York’s mass transit system will be able to pay for their subway or bus fares from their phone with the MTA’s new OMNY (“One Metro New York”) contactless fare payment system.
OMNY makes it fast and fun to pay your fare for your ride, so you can get on your way. No more searching your wallet for a MetroCard, only to realize you left it at home. No more waiting in line to buy a new card, only to miss your train. Just use Samsung Pay at the turnstile or bus terminal and you’re on your way¹. That’s several New York minutes saved—so you can spend time doing more of what you want.
The addition of mass transit is an important step in helping you sail through your day with Samsung Pay. It’s also part of our vision for a world built around mobile wallets.
Samsung Pay is on millions of Samsung Galaxy devices in more than 24 markets on six continents around the world. Samsung Pay currently supports 2000+ banks and credit unions and hundreds of merchants, with more on the way.
That’s because Samsung Pay works almost anywhere you can tap or swipe a card. It’ll work virtually anywhere contactless payments or magnetic stripe readers are accepted, which makes it the most convenient service for mobile payments on the market. And it’s secure.Samsung Pay can only be opened by you and it’s protected by the defense-grade security of Samsung Knox.
Plus, it’s much more than a wallet (and a lot less bulky). It’s a marketplace where shoppers can access great deals and experiences in-store and online from hundreds of popular brands and retailers. You can even see great deals near you in the Nearby section and connect your many membership and loyalty cards for even more savings. And, with every purchase you make, you may earn cash back awards or get extra perks through Samsung Rewards.
We’ll keep adding more features and services to Samsung Pay to give people more convenient ways to shop, save, and get from point A to point B—or from Atlantic Avenue to Union Square – and eventually everywhere in between.
