%DETAILS%. Answer . I've been writing a paper on it for my university writing class at Columbia, and I've found a lot of interesting information about the formation of the Music Under New York program (it started in 1985). As for before 1985, I don't really know. Supposedly they were "prohibited…" by the MTA, but they were still there. Now there are "permitted" musicians, and technically if a subway musician is any good, it would be most likely that they have a permit.. (MORE)
Answer . \nfirst, you read the subway map to find out where you're at and where you're going. Then you go to the Metrocard machine and pay $2 per ride. Swipe your Metrocard through the turnstile. Proceed to the side in which your going. For example: If you're heading to Yankee Stadium in the Bro…nx and you're at The Bronx Zoo, you'd head to the Downtown side of the train station. take the number 2 or 5 train to 149th St & Grand Concourse. Go upstairs and transfer to the number 4 train heading to Woodlawn. Take the train to 161 Street/River Avenue/Yankee Staduim. Get off the train and walk outside. (MORE)
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.
Answer . No, I think the 5 million passengers who travel on the New York City subway system every day simply guess which trains to take.
It takes between 19 to 21 hours from New York to Chicago by train.Amtrak provides travelers the ability to take a train ride betweenboth cities either one way or a round trip.

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 S…treet 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. (MORE)
The New York City subway system doesn't have a name. It's just, "the subway." The individual lines are assigned colors, and the trains on those lines are assigned numbers or letters: the A-C-E (the blue line), the 1-2-3 (the red line), the G train (the light green line), the 4-5-6 (the dark green li…ne), the B-D-F-M (the orange line), the J-Z (the brown line), the 7 train (the purple line), the N-R-Q-W (the yellow line) and the S shuttle trains (color grey).

Yes! As of now, there is only one subway line that runs all the way up and down (north/south and south/north) the East Side of Manhattan: the 4-5-6 line (color code green), aka the IRT, aka the Lexington Avenue Subway. On the West Side, there are two lines that run up and down Manhattan: the A-C-E l…ine (color blue), and the 1-2-3 line (color red), aka the BMT, aka the Broadway line. (The 4-5-6 green line, and the 1-2-3 red line, were the first subway lines in Manhattan. Back then, they were called the IRT, or the Lexington Avenue line, and the BMT, or the Broadway line). Since there is only one subway line on the East Side that runs all the way up and down, it's really, really congested all the time. And it's even worse at rush hour: since the train goes from the Upper East Side -- the richest neighborhood in the city -- down to Wall Street, the Financial District, and City Hall and the courthouses, at rush hour most of the white collar people in the city are taking the exact same train at the exact same time. Sometimes it's so crowded, you literally have to push and shove your way into the car, and fight for a space to breathe. So, a new subway line is being built, the 2nd Avenue Line. The Second Avenue Line will be called the T train, and its color code will be light blue (as opposed to the dark blue A-C-E line). Second Avenue runs north/south through Manhattan, two blocks east of Lexington Avenue. The city has been waiting a long, long time for this: the first plans for the 2nd Avenue line date back all the way to 1929. The line will open one segment at a time, with the first segment due to open sometime around 2013. (MORE)
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 gr…ey) 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. (MORE)
Public transportation in New York City is regulated and administered by the NYCTA (New York City Transit Authority), which is a sub-division of the MTA (Metro Transit Authority). The MTA is the New York State transit authority. See the Related Links below for more information about the NYCTA and th…e MTA. (MORE)
Pretty reliable. Meaning, you might have to wait awhile for your train to come, but it WILL come eventually. During the day, you usually don't have to wait more than 10 or 15 minutes for a train, and in the middle of the night, you usually don't have to wait more than half an hour, at the most. Oft…en there are delays due to weather conditions (flooding or ice on the tracks), or certain lines are shut down for repairs and trackwork. But if the train you need is unavailable, they will create an alternate route for you. Like, if the C train is shut down between midnight and 5 AM for a week, then the B train will run along the C train's route during those hours. Worst case scenario, they will provide a shuttle bus for you, at no additional charge. Occasionally someone will have a heart attack or something on the subway, and the whole line will be shut down until the paramedics come. But that doesn't happen very often, and there isn't really anything they can do to prevent it. (MORE)
Five cents. The fare was 5 cents from the time the first subway line, the IRT, opened in 1904, until July 1, 1948, when it doubled to 10 cents.
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 line) 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.

Type your answer here... very safe.....there's absolutely nothing to worry about. It could actually be a fun experience!
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.

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 p…roblem: 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. (MORE)
No, you cannot take the subway to Greenwich from New York City. But you can take the subway to the MetroNorth stations, and then take MetroNorth Railroad to Greenwich. See the Related Link below for MetroNorth schedules and fares. You will need to click the icon on the RIGHT, the one that says "Cli…ck for lines EAST of Hudson - Harlem, Hudson, New Haven." MetroNorth trains depart from Grand Central Station, and from East 125th Street and Park Avenue. Take the 4-5-6 subway line (the dark green line) to either 42nd Street (Grand Central) or 125th Street, and then transfer to MetroNorth. See the second Related Link for a complete New York City subway map. (MORE)
On an average weekday approximately 5 million people ride the NYC Subway. On the weekend the amount is less than half of the weekday ridership.
No subway stops at Avenue D. Or Avenues C, B and A. All of Alphabet City is without subway stations. You either take the L (the grey line) to 1st Avenue and walk southeast, or take the J (of the J-Z , the brown line) or the F (of the B-D-F-M , the orange line) to Delancey Street-Essex Street… and walk northeast.

The Yankees lead the Subway Series record against the New York Mets, with 6 wins, 2 losses and 5 ties . Since interleague play began in 1997, the Yankees have 42 total wins to the Mets 30.
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. The rest just don't have any announcements.
A ride on the New York City subway or bus system cost 35 cents from January 1, 1972 until August 31, 1975. The fare was 30 cents through December 31, 1971.
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 revenue service can be up to 12 cars long. The New York City Subway system maintains two separate fleets of cars, one for th…e 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. (MORE)
Because it's faster than the buses, cheaper than the taxis, and both faster AND cheaper than driving in your own car. The majority of New York City's residents don't even own cars in the first place.
There are a few ways to do this. You can take the 6 train to 51st Street.

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. (MORE)
Yes, there is both an Uptown and a Downtown C train. All of New York City's subway lines run both ways.
No, if you're talking about the transportation kind. I think there are subways in Montreal and definitely in London.
The first subway in NYC was the IRT line. It began operation on October 27, 1904.
The New York City subway system doesn't have a name, other than, "the New York City subway system," which is self-explanatory.

I assume you are asking if the subway tunnels go under rivers or oceans. The answer is yes. For example, the NYC subway goes to Brooklyn and Queens, which is on the opposite site of the East river from Manhattan.
The 86th Street Station (at Broadway) on the 1 train (of the 1-2-3, the red line) has drawings (actually, they are paintings) of people on tile. The paintings are all set in Manhattan: on park benches, at community centers, basketball courts, street fairs, etc. There may be other stations that have… these tile paintings, but this is the only one I can think of offhand.
