“Great way to move around New York”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

The subway is fast, clean, safe, cheap and friendly. We bought the 7 day unlimited metro card for $30 (+$1 card fee) and rode the subway all hours of the night and day. Never waited more than 5 mins for a train and always felt safe.

“Urgent need of modernisation.”
Reviewed 17 September 2013

Stiflingly hot. Often very dirty and run down. Way behind European counterparts as an experience. Trains were reliable though.
Oh hang on, are we talking about the sandwich bars here?

We got a little confused about which subway to take to different places, but the New Yorker's were very friendly to help us out. Never was afraid to ride the Subway, they were quit cool!!!

“Works great..if you have some smarts!”
Reviewed 10 July 2013

We liked that in Manhattan, you can find yourself a line going pretty much anywhere...a short walk to anything really.
Yes, it takes a bit of figuring, but honestly if your IQ is average or above, you should be able to figure it out.
The platforms are kinda cramped and feel old and spooky... I really liked that!
The cars have great A/C and the layout is just like any other public transport.
You can't hear what the conductor says..don't try..just be observant and remember to count how many stops it was you calculated to where you where going.
We thought the advertisements were hilarous...1-800-Divorce right beside 1-800-Bankruptcy ...it's funny the things you notice.
You don't need a cab really in NYC if you are at all street savvy and not an all out tourist, standing out with your silly shorts and fanny packs...
But we come from a big city so maybe we are biased.

“Subway Great Way to Travel”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We were a little concerned about travelling on the subway with all the warnings from people. We found the subway very safe & we travelled with 2 children (10 & 12 yrs). They don't recommend at at night, I think we were on the train till 7.30pm & had no problems.
