My understanding is that real time data is sent from all Metrocard vehicles via GPRS to a central site. The supply of data is "real soon now" and they are keen to get developers using the data
All of the timetable data and stop data has been available for a year or so as GTFS format, although hidden on their old site under "site map". There is a copy also on GitHub.
Getting back on topic I don't think their license condition permits upload to OpenStreetmap, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.
