The Metrocard's days are coming to an end as the MTA makes an effort to phase out the flimsy card in place of a more updated wireless 'tap' system which would involve a smartphone.   The rollout?  It'll start in May of next year!  


The MTA will launch its new fare payment system in May 2019 along a stretch of the 4, 5 and 6 trains and across all bus routes on Staten Island, allowing riders to use mobile wallets or bank cards to pay for a ride, according to MTA officials.

For those not quite ready to make the change though... not to worry:
