What subway train do you take to get to Best Western at 39-34 21st Street Long Island City New York from Penn Station?
Take the Downtown A-C-E (the blue line) from 34th Street-Penn Station to West 4th Street (doesn't matter which you take, the A, C or E, since all three stop at West 4th). Tran…sfer at West 4th Street to the Uptown F train (of the B-D-F-M, the orange line) to 21st Street-Queensbridge in Queens (Long Island City is in Queens). This is the first stop the F train makes in Queens. It's the next stop after Roosevelt Island. The 21st Street-Queensbridge Station is at or near the corner of 41st Avenue and 21st Street. Walk one block north on 21st Street to 40th Avenue. Cross 40th Avenue, and continue up 21st Street about half a block to the Best Western at 39-34 21st Street between 40th and 39th Avenues.
There are 468 New York City subway stations, although the number is reduced to 423 if stations that are connected to each other (such as the New Utrecht Avenue Station and the… 62nd Street Station, or the Times Square Station and the Port Authority Bus Terminal Station, or the Lexington Avenue-53rd Street Station and the 51st Street Station) are not counted separately. New York offers one of the most widespread subway systems in the world. There are 468 stations which cover over 840 miles.
Including rail storage yards, over 722 miles of track. Another Answer There are 842 miles of track in the New York subway system. This does include non-revenue track… (maintenance etc). There are 468 passenger stations (ones that anyone can get to). It is one of the few rapid transit systems to run 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. This answer does include the miles of track that are actually above ground, which is about 40% or about 337 miles. It was first built in 1869 by Alfred Ely Beach and extended just under 100 metres under Broadway. This small tunnel was never extended, although there were plans to incorporate it into a further tunnel. This original tunnel was demolished in the 1910's to help build the BMT Broadway Tunnel.
There are 10 New York City subway lines: A-C-E (the blue line) B-D-F-M (the orange line) 1-2-3 (the red line) 4-5-6 (the dark green line) N-R-Q-W (the yellow line) J-Z (…the brown line) 7 train (the purple line) G train (the light green line) L train (color code grey) S shuttle trains, also color code grey (three of them: 1. from Times Square to Grand Central Station and back, 2. Franklin Avenue Shuttle, and 3. Rockaway Park Shuttle) Note that as of June/July 2010, the M train, formerly of the J-M-Z (the brown line), is now on the orange line, in place of the now-defunct V train. So, it used to be, the B-D-F-V was the orange line, and the J-M-Z was the brown line. Now, there's no more V train, and the M is on the orange line.
A typical New York City Subway train consists of 8 to 11 cars, although shuttles can have as few as 2, and the train can range from 150 to 600 feet in length. Trains not in re…venue service can be up to 12 cars long. The New York City Subway system maintains two separate fleets of cars, one for the IRT lines and another for the BMT/IND lines. All BMT/IND equipment is about 10 feet wide and either 60 feet 6 inches or 75 feet long whereas IRT equipment is approximately 8 feet 9 inches wide and 51 feet 4 inches long. For many years, there were 10 cars with a length of 60 feet each. On rare occasions, you may still see one of these older trains. During the 1950's, on the IND Division, 11 car trains of 60 foot cars for a total length of 660 feet were operated. These were discontinued after a few years and are not operated today. Since the 1960's 11 car trains have been in operation on one line of the IRT Division and are still in operation today. On the BMT/IND Division, older trains of 60 foot cars may be operated in lengths of 6, 8, or 10 cars. The newest cars are in units of 4 or 5 car sets, and can be operated with two units, forming consists of 8 or 10 cars respectively. Trains consisting of 75 foot cars, operating in full length consists, operate using 8 cars which are equivalent to 10 of the 60 foot cars. In half length operation, they run as 4 car consists, equivalent to 5 of the 60 foot cars. However operated, they are unitized in 4 car sets. Other configurations have been used in the past, particularly on the BMT Division which had its own variety of unitized and articulated sets.

If you are traveling at any time EXCEPT weekdays between 4 and 6:45 PM: Take the Uptown B train (of the B-D-F-M, the orange line) or Uptown C train (of the A-C-E, the blue li…ne) from 72nd Street (at Central Park West) to 125th Street or 145th Street. Transfer at 125th or 145th to the Uptown D train to 161st Street-Yankee Stadium. If you are traveling on a weekday between 4 and 6:45 PM: Take the Uptown B train from 72nd Street to 161st Street-Yankee Stadium. The B train only stops at Yankee Stadium during morning and evening rush hours in peak directions, when the D isn't stopping there. The Downtown (Manhattan-bound) D skips the 161st Street-Yankee Stadium stop from 6:15 to 9 AM on weekdays, and the Uptown (Bronx-bound) D skips the Yankee Stadium stop from 4 to 6:45 PM on weekdays.
You mean, how do you pay for your ride? There are still some stations that are manned by transit workers, and you can buy your Metrocard from them. But most often, you have to… buy it from one of the electronic kiosks. Half the time those machines won't take bills. Or, sometimes you get the reverse problem: they will ONLY take bills, and not credit or debit cards. So the best thing to do is have both cash and a credit or debit card with you, so you will be prepared for either situation. There are several different types of Metrocards you can buy. The most common are the Single-Ride Tickets, the Unlimited cards, and the pay-per-ride cards. The Single Ride card is a paper card that's good for one ride only. The 30-day and 7-day Unlimited cards give you unlimited rides for a month or a week. With the pay-per-ride cards, you pay $10, $20, or $50 (or any amount you want over $4.50), and the amount of money will be loaded onto a brand-new plastic Metrocard, which will pop out of the slot. You can use it immediately. Each ride currently costs $2.25 (as of 2011) with a pay-per-ride card. Single Ride Tickets cost $2.50. 30-day Unlimited cards are $104, and 7-day Unlimited cards are $29. But keep in mind that Unlimited cards do not work after midnight. These same cards also work for the city buses. The pay-per-ride cards give you a free transfer (within 2 hours) between the bus and subway, or between buses, as long as you're not going in opposite directions. The MTA will not pay for your return trip. Meaning, if you take the 86th Street crosstown bus from the West Side to the East Side, and you head back home less than 2 hours later, you cannot get a free trip back to the West Side. It will only give you a free transfer if you're continuing your trip, for example, if you transfer from the 86th Street crosstown bus to an Uptown or Downtown subway line, or from the 86th Street crosstown bus to an Uptown or Downtown bus. You walk over to the turnstiles with your new Metrocard, and you slide it through the slot. The turnstile will unlock and allow you to pass through. Then you walk to the platform of the train you need to take, and you wait. When the train comes, you get on. When it gets to your stop, you get off.
New York City Subway, or just the subway, or MTA.
In Train Travel
It takes between 19 to 21 hours from New York to Chicago by train. Amtrak provides travelers the ability to take a train ride between both cities either one way or a round… trip.
The train conductors (the guys who ride in the box at the front of every car) do it, except on cars that don't have conductors. Some subway lines have pre-recorded messages. T…he rest just don't have any announcements.
No, if you're talking about the transportation kind. I think there are subways in Montreal and definitely in London.
