"Subway and escalator ettiquette..." Subway Tip by mle267

Subway, New York City: 18 reviews and 8 photos

We are thrilled that you will be visiting New York. Here are a few tips to keep in mind that will help you avoid dirty looks from some locals.

When riding the subway...please stand to the side of the doors and allow passengers to exit before boarding. If I could have one wish in the world, this would be it- well, of course, except for World Peace.

Also, when riding on escaltors, or climbing stairs- stay to the right!
