MTA Will Soon Replace The MetroCard

MTA Will Soon Replace The MetroCardThe MetroCard isn’t quite ready to go the way of the token just yet, but it’s getting closer. The MTA’s taken a step toward its eventual replacement.  The new “contactless” system will allow subway riders to flash credit cards, mobile devices or MTA-issued cards at turnstiles to gain entry, in a manner similar to the E-Z Pass devices on toll roads. The system is expected to be in place by 2020 and MetroCards will be completely phased out 2022, according to the MTA’s timetable: Source: NY1
