The NYC Subway

The NYC Subway
  • 1904 saw the opening of the New York City Subway with the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT) division, now known as the A division, along with the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit Corporation (BMT).
  • It is the world’s largest network spreading 380 kilometres handling 1.72 billion passengers a year. The 36 lines operate day and night, thus requiring more maintenance.
  • The subway stations were targeted with crime and vandalism in the 1970s, leading to loss of ridership.
