I read some great advice here--know the stop you want and know the end point of the line which it is one. Take the train in the diretion of that last stop-which will be named.
Also in the Metro there are signs saying how soon the next train will appear - never did I have a wait of over 6 mintues and the time that actually elapsed was less than the stated time
Now there are three ways the doors open once you are inside -turn the handle (I find this impossible and like to stand behind someone ele getting off), push a button or do nothing. Can someone help - are there also three ways to access a door when entering...?
Just an fyi--I have lived in NYC oh 35 yrs and yesterday I was taking a subway with which I was fiarly familiar--and it was more difficult than taking the Metro in Paris last week with which I am far less familiar.
Also for the most part the stations are less deep than the NY or washington ones and they have service for email--we don't have that yet.
Distances between two stops often are short and often there are several stop sor several lines that work just as well.
A good map I've named my faves all over this forum helps. Also a quesiton to a concierge if you're staying in a hotel about distance or makign a drawing on the map helps too.
