City transport and traffic


Like every big city, New York has its own traffic system. Traffic jams can be terrible, and it's usually the quickest way to go by subway. The New York, subway is easy to use and quite cheap. It goes to almost every comer of Manhattan. But be careful. It’s better not to go by subway late at night.

You see more, of course, if you go by bus. New York buses are also easy to use. The “Shoppers Shuttle” (Monday to Friday) and the “Cultural Loops” (Saturdays and Sundays) stop at some of the best-known stores and tourist places. You can get on and off as many times as you like in one day with only one ticket.

There are more than 30,000 taxis in New York. They are easy to see, because they are bright yellow and carry large TAXI signs. Taxis do not go outside the city but they will go to the airports. People give the taxi driver a “tip” of 15% extra.

If you really have to drive in New York, remember that nearly all the east-west streets and most of the north-south streets are one way only. This can be difficult for the visitor who does not know his way. Try to get a map that shows the direction of the traffic, and — good luck!
