Thanks for the feedback!
best way is to be at the last stop of a train where the trains are held until it's their due time to leave again. operators usually arrive early before they are supposed to go… out. that's how i met one. i wanted to ask him about taking the test.
In 2007, 1,563 million people used the NY subway.

Type your answer here... very safe.....there's absolutely nothing to worry about. It could actually be a fun experience!
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.
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.
There are a few ways to do this. You can take the 6 train to 51st Street. Transfer is available between the 51st Street Station on the 6 train and the 53rd Street-Lexington Av…enue Station on the E train. Take the Downtown E to 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal, and transfer there to the A. Or, take the Downtown 6 to Bleeker Street. Transfer is available between the Bleeker Street Station on the Downtown 6 (NOT the Uptown 6) and the Broadway-Lafayette Station on the B-D-F-M. Take the Uptown B-D-F-M to West 4th Street, and transfer there to the A. Or, you can take the 6 to Canal Street, 14th Street-Union Square, or 59th Street, and transfer there to the N-R-Q-W to 42nd Street-Times Square. Then walk through the tunnel that connects the 42nd Street-Times Square Station to the 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal Station. Get the A at 42nd Street-Port Authority.
Yes, there is both an Uptown and a Downtown C train. All of New York City's subway lines run both ways.
The L train (the grey line) runs across 14th Street in Manhattan, then goes under the East River and runs across northern Brooklyn.
In Manhattan, the only direct transfer from the E to the R, or the R to the E, is at 42nd Street. Take the E to 42nd Street-Port Authority Bus Terminal, and then walk through …the tunnel that connects the 42nd Street-Port Authority station to the 42nd Street-Times Square station, and get the R at Times Square. There are a number of ways to indirectly transfer from the E to the R. You can take the E to West 4th Street, transfer there to the Uptown B-D-F-M to 34th Street-Herald Square, and then transfer to the R at Herald Square. Or, you can take the E to 14th Street, transfer there to the Brooklyn-bound L, take the L to 14th Street-Union Square, and transfer at Union Square to the R. Or, you can take the E to 7th Avenue-53rd Street, transfer there to the Downtown B or D to 34th Street-Herald Square, and then transfer at Herald Square to the R. Or, you can take the E to 5th Avenue-53rd Street, transfer there to the Downtown M, take the M to 34th Street-Herald Square, and transfer at Herald Square to the R. Or, you can take the E to Lexington Avenue-53rd Street. Transfer is available between this station and the 51st Street station on the 6 train. Take the Uptown 6 one stop to 59th Street, and transfer there to the R. The only other way to transfer directly from the E to the R or the R to the E is in Queens. You can transfer from one to the other at Forest Hills-71st Avenue, Jackson Heights-Roosevelt Avenue, or Queens Plaza.
In New York City, there are currently 468 subway terminals. These stations serve more subway lines than any other system throughout the world.
Same as with any railroad. There are maintence yards where the trains are above ground. New trains and old trains can be added and removed by crane from trucks or in some case…s an interconnect track allows new cars to move directly onto the subway system tracks.
