Apple Pay is rolling out to more and more card providers, countries and other sorts of places all the time and one of the latest places to get Apple Pay support is Penn Station in New York, which is one of the largest stations in the US.
New York City public transport agency MTA has announced that Apple Pay has now been officially supported as of Wednesday this week.
Today is yet another momentous occasion in the continued rollout of OMNY, the MTA’s game-changing contactless fare payment system,” said NYC Transit President Andy Byford. “Penn Station is one of the system’s busiest subway stations and will allow hundreds of thousands of commuters the opportunity to tap and ride using a device or contactless card of their own choosing, including customers arriving on the Long Island Rail Road, New Jersey Transit, and Amtrak, who connect with the subway system here at Penn Station. Chase, Visa and other partners have done an immense amount of work to help spread the word about OMNY and we’re thankful for their support.
