Getting Around

With an extensive network of subway trains, frequent busses and thousands of iconic yellow cabs, getting around New York City couldn’t be easier.

Tip: If you’re planning on using the subway to get around, save money by purchasing a 7-day ‘metrocard’ for around $30 on your first day. You will be able to ride the rails without topping it up for a whole week. Individual train and cab fares can become pricey so it’s worth getting a week pass even for a 3-day trip.
