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.
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 yell…ow 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.

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 (ma…intenance 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.
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.
