"Riding the trains" Top 5 Page for this destination Subway Tip by cjg1

Subway, New York City: 337 reviews and 299 photos

Taking the subway, even after the fare hike from $1.50 to $2.00 it is still a great way to get around long distances in the city. The maps are easy to read and the system fairly simple and easy to use.

And another reason why NYC is the greatest. Our trains run ALL NIGHT.

Fares are $2 per ride with one free transfer to a bus. You can ride any train anywhere however long you want for this $2.
For $7 you can get a day pass. Unlimited rides on the day you buy it until midnight.
$24 will buy you a weekly pass. Note. This is usually best for people coming in even for only a couple days.
And of course the monthly is $76.
