It may be one of the oldest and most elaborate subway systems in the world, but millions of riders use New York City’s subway and bus system each day. With a vast array of New York City residents and tourists, and service to virtually every part of the city, every ride offers a new insight into the life of the city.
If you know where you want to go, but don’t know how to get there, visit hopstop.com. Type in an address or intersection and a map of the location pops up with nearby subway lines highlighted, and detailed directions.
When riding the subway, take the time to make sure you are getting on the right train in the right direction. Don’t feel bad when you end up on the wrong train: it happens to everyone at some point. Plan ahead—especially during off-peak hours. Trains are less frequent late at night and on weekends: some trains won’t run at all (or run on a different track) as the MTA performs station and track renovations during these hours. Look for signs in the station and listen for announcements about track changes due to construction. All service adjustments should be posted in advance on the bulletin boards on the subway platforms.
You can also bike in New York City, either for recreation or to get to work. There are several greenways in the city, including the West Side Greenway, which runs along the west side of Manhattan along the Hudson. You can also bike in Central and Prospect Parks and in the city’s ever-growing number of bike lanes.
