The most common mode of transportation in the city is via subway. To use NYC’s subway, you must first buy a Metro Card from a ticket kiosk located nearby subway turnstiles or at a manned MTA booth and then add money onto the Metro Card for rides.
Metro Cards cost $1, but can be refilled, so don’t lose it! Rides cost $2.75 one way, and can be used on both the subway and MTA buses. A ride also includes a free transfer between subway and buses. If you plan on staying in New York City for an extended amount of time, and plan to do a lot of travel, I’d recommend investing in a 7-Day Unlimited Metro Card which cost $31. The best part of NYC’s subway, is that it runs 24-7, that’s why we’re the city that never sleeps!
Aside from our massive metro, we also have an extensive network of Taxis! NYC’s yellow taxi cabs, and Boro green-apple taxi cabs are safe and very reliable. All city cabs take credit card, and offer live maps so that you can see where your driver is taking you. Other car services like Uber and Lyft are also readily available.
