Using Apple Pay to Ride the NYC Subway Is Fast

“It was over in a split second. With a tap of her iPhone XS to the new OMNY contactless payment terminals installed on the turnstiles at the Grand Central Terminal-42nd Street station, an Apple executive showed me how fast and easy it is to use Apple Pay to purchase a subway ride.  Then she did it again, but this time tapped her Apple Watch to the terminal instead. As the terminal’s blue lights switched from blue to green and displayed a “GO” on its screen, I couldn’t help but get a little excited for the death of the MetroCard.”
