Ride Under the Big City

Ride Under the Big City The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system owned by the City of New York and leased to the New York City Transit Authority, a subsidiary agency of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). It is one of the largest public transportation systems in the world by number of stations, with 468 stations in operation (421, if stations connected by transfers are counted as single stations). The New York City Subway is also one of the world’s oldest public transit systems. Overall, the system contains 232 miles of routes. In 2013, the subway delivered over 1.71 billion rides, averaging approximately 5.5 million rides on weekdays, about 3.2 million rides on Saturdays, and about 2.6 million rides on Sundays. Ridership has been consistently increasing over the last several years, especially because of rising gas prices and the subway’s energy efficiency. By: Alexandra Bronski Photos: Maria Farah 26
