Digital Discussion – Tokens and Turnstiles: Subway Fare through Time

Saturday, March 27 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Free Online Discussion

Fare collection in New York City has changed significantly over time. From tickets, to nickels, to dimes, to tokens, to MetroCards, and into the future with OMNY, the way we have paid our fare to board public transit has been an evolving process.

Join Senior Education Coordinator, Cassie Wood-Triplett for a digital discussion focusing on the history of fare collection in New York City. Learn about the evolution from omnibus tickets to OMNY, how our city’s subway fare has always worked to be a fair price and what it means to be a one-fare system.
