MTA New York City Transit
The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) operates New York City’s vast subway and bus systems, providing fast, efficient, convenient and affordable transportation to millions of people every day in the five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island). Subways run 24 hours, seven days a week; most buses run between 5 a.m. and 2 a.m. daily. A single bus and subway ride costs $2.50, while the MTA’s MetroCard provides multiple rides at a discounted fare. Details about bus and subway service and MetroCard fares can be obtained on the MTA’s multilingual Web site.
