Insights for New York Transportation
- Most subway maintenance and repair is done late at night or on weekends, which means that some subway lines may skip stops or not be running at all. Check the Metropolitan Transportation Authority site for service changes.
- If you’re going to be riding public transportation twice a day or more (such as to and from work) buying an unlimited MetroCard is an economical way to go. Rather than paying a $2 fare each way, you can buy a daily, weekly or monthly pass that gives you unlimited access to all of the subways and buses during that time period. MetroCards can be purchased at almost any subway station.
- You can tell whether a taxi is available by looking at the sign on the roof of the car: if it’s not lit, it’s occupied; if it’s completely lit, it’s off duty; if the middle section is lit, it’s available, and you can try to hail it.
