No matter where you come from, you'll be in awe of the City's size. In
terms of square miles, Manhattan is not large at all. But its
concentration outdoes any city in the world! Here are some street smart
tips on getting around The Big Apple that'll leave you with the
confidence and ability to traverse the big city for yourself:
Taxis are the most convenient and most assuredly
expensive means of public transportation in City. There are
nearly 12,000 of them roaming the streets for fares. If you want one,
it's easy! Just look for the light on the roof, raise your arm, yell,
"Taxi!" and it's yours. Taxis are only allowed to carry 4
passengers maximum - 3 in back and 1 up front. It’s a good
idea to find out beforehand what cross street an avenue address is on.
Unlike London, our cabbies don't always know. Your fare will be
determined by the meter up front. Currently, fares begin at $2 and
increase by 30 units every 1/5 mile. A 50 unit nighttime surcharge
applies between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. A 10 to 20% tip is customary.
The bus can be the perfect solution for getting across town. Buses
accept tokens, exact change or Metrocard - no bills.
Metrocard offers a 1-day Fun Pass for $4 and a 7-day unlimited ride for
$17. It can only be used by one person at a time. Ask for a free
transfer to continue your travel on a connecting bus line from uptown/
downtown to crosstown and vice versa. In order to use the free transfer
onto the subway, you must use the Metrocard. Make sure you see the
number of the bus. Several lines can run on the same street. Watch out
for "Limited" lines - these are like express trains.
If there was ever a way of beating midtown traffic, it's on the subway.
Purchase a Metrocard or tokens at the booth in the subway station. Buy
enough for a few round trips. In order to use the free transfer onto
the bus, you must use the Metrocard. Plan your route
beforehand. Stand away from the edge and in the middle of the platform.
Make sure you are on the correct direction side. Don’t get on
an express line unless you know where it will stop!
