MTA MetroCard/OMNY Fare Conversion

As some of you may be aware, tomorrow the MTA will begin the first phase of their much larger project to phase out the MetroCard and replace it with an updated payment system called OMNY (standing for One Metropolitan New York).

However, some changes will be coming up (you may have seen the new fare card readers on some subway turnstiles around the City), so below is a short summary of the program in case you have any questions.
