Having sampled subway systems throughout the world, I would say New York City's is one of the least efficient and worst value for your money. The flat fare (doesn(t matter where or how far you go) was recently (spring 2003) raised to $2.00 from $1.50-I remember when it was under $1.00, then again I remember when comic books were 60 cents....

That said, it is never dull taking the subway with its many service changes (especially on the weekends and holidays), panhandlers, and performers.
