Getting Around New York City
The best way to get around NYC is through a combination of walking and mass transit. NYC”s extensive system of subways and buses are inexpensive and operated 24/7.

Getting an MTA MetroCard is your first step to navigating the City by subway or bus. A MetroCard is required to enter the subway system, while exact change or a MetroCard can be used on buses. You can purchase a MetroCard at any subway station from multilingual machines (which accept cash, and credit and debit cards) or booth attendants.

Riders have three options for fare payment; a single ride ticket, a pay-per-ride MetroCard or an unlimited-ride MetroCard. A single-ride ticket costs $3, is sold only at vending machines and must be used within two hours of purchase. For MetroCards, there is a $1 fee to purchase so be sure to retain it (and check the expiration date on the back of the card—the MTA will issue a new MetroCard for no charge if your card has expired or is damaged). With a pay-per-ride MetroCard, the base fare for a subway or bus ride is $2.75. If a value over $5.50 is added to the card, an additional 11 percent bonus is added as well. Below are some samples with the bonus:

Buy a $ 9.91 MetroCard ($11 value) 4 rides
Buy a $19.82 MetroCard ($22 value) 8 rides
Buy a $39.64 MetroCard ($44 value) 16 rides

An unlimited MetroCard enables users to ride all subways and buses as often as they like and costs $31 for seven days or $116.50 for 30 days.

New York City Taxis and Uber
The famous yellow fleet of the NYC taxis can be seen throughout Midtown. To hail a taxi, stand at the curb and look for a yellow cab with an illuminated white number on top. Off-duty cabs display the illuminated words “Off Duty” on the same sign. Board and exit on the cab curbside.

Uber is also prevalent in NYC. If you are not familiar with Uber, you can download the mobile app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store.

New York City is committed to ensuring accessibility for everyone with special needs, and has equipped all buses with lifts for those in wheelchairs and those who have difficulty climbing stairs. In addition, many subway stations include elevators, ramps, visual display signs, accessible public telephones, and tactile and audio features on vending machines. Subways also have automated voices indicating stops, and all buses and select subway stations are wheelchair accessible. Many street-hail taxicabs accommodate wheelchairs. To request a wheelchair-accessible taxi, call the accessible dispatch center at 646-599-9999; text a request to 646-400-0789; or download the free mobile app “WOW Taxi” at the Apple App Store.
