Contactless debit card for city employees with commuter benefit card
Currently I need to load my metro card from my commuter benefit card every few weeks. If my commuter benefit card was contactless, I would be able just use the omny readers on trains and buses.

You can purchase an OMNY card ($5), and link the Edenred Commuter Benefit card as the funding source for the OMNY card. As the OMNY card balance run low, it will just auto-replenish by charging the refill to the Edenred card.
That being said, I don't know if you're SUPPOSED/ALLOWED to do that. I haven't gotten a clear answer from my agency's HR, but I've heard NYC employees from another agency do this.
I tried to link the Edenred CB card to my OMNY registered credit card and OMNY rejected the Edenred CB card.
