NYC Subway System
The New York City subway system is one of the most efficient people transports in the entire world. The hot and dingy subway system of the 1970's has been completely renovated into a safe, convenient and comfortable mode of transportation between nearly all areas of New York City. Over 4.3 million people ride the subway system every day; over 1 billion people go through the turnstiles per year! While minor theft and homelessness still abound, the subway is a much better place than was predicted back in the financially troubled days of the city.

How to Ride the Subway
The fare is $2. You can pay your fare with MetroCard. Senior citizens and people with disabilities who have proper identification are eligible for reduced fares. These benefits are available with proper forms of identification including Reduced-Fare MetroCard or Medicare card.

Waiting for Your Train
Follow the signs displaying the subway route you want to take. At the platform edge you'll find signs that tell which trains stop there and the direction the trains are going, such as Uptown (northbound), Downtown (southbound), or Brooklyn-bound. In general, trains run every 2 to 5 minutes during rush hours, every 10 to 15 minutes during the day and about every 20 minutes between midnight and 5 AM.

In Case of Emergency
Go to the station booth. Station agents have phones to contact emergency medical services and the police.
You can also go to the train's first car (where the train operator is) or the middle car (where the conductor is usually located). The train crews have radios that they can use to call for help.

Fares & MetroCard
The fare for a subway or local bus ride is $2. The fare for an express bus ride is $4. If you qualify for Reduced Fare, you can travel for half fare. Up to three children 44 inches tall and under ride for free when accompanied by a fare paying adult.

Pay-Per-Ride MetroCard
Buy as many rides as you want from $4 to $80. Put $10 or more on your card and receive a 20 percent bonus. For example, a $20 purchase gives you $24 on your card. 12 trips for the price of 10. You get an automatic free transfer between subway and bus, or between buses.

Unlimited Ride MetroCard
Buy an unlimited number of subway and bus rides for a fixed price. Choose from a 1-Day Fun Pass, a 7-Day, 30-Day, 7-Day Express Bus Plus, or a 30-Day Unlimited Ride MetroCard accepted on JFK AirTrain only.
