The subway is the easiest and fastest way to get around all 5 boroughs. You will need to purchase a “Metro-card” from inside any subway station in the city. If you purchase a Metro-card, you can add time or value to your card, but you can also just buy a single ride. If you choose to add value rather than time on your Metro-card, each ride will cost $2.75, but you may change trains once inside the subway without an additional fee. Remember that if you are taking the subway in Manhattan, you need to know if you are heading “Uptown” or “Downtown.” You can refer to the street numbers. If the street number is getting bigger, you need to take an uptown train. If the street number is getting smaller, you need to take a downtown train. You can also think of uptown as north and downtown as south. Also, if you are taking a train to another borough, look for signs or listen for announcements that say, “Brooklyn-Bound,” “Queens-Bound,” “Bronx-Bound,” or “Manhattan-Bound,” for example. Here is a link to the NYC subway map. If you ever need help figuring out the subway, feel free to ask an agent or your teacher!
