The MTA is continuing their quest to teach us barbaric New Yorkers some morals.  Of course, they are exactly the right team of folks to be in charge of such an endeavor.
In their latest batch of subway car advertisements, a sign clearly illustrates that it is “the right thing to do” when you get up [...]

This app is freaking awesome.  Just another reason I have to get an iPhone.  I’ll have to steal my buddies phone and install it on there so I can play with it.
According to the website, it doesn’t look like it is out just yet.  It seems they are waiting for Apple to approve it.
You’ve got [...]

Happy fare hike Monday.  Actually, the fares jumped over the weekend, but most of us wouldn’t have noticed until today.
So now that we have a $2.25 fare, your pants just got heavier.  How so?  Well, if you buy a single ride with a $5 bill, you’re going to get back two dollar coins plus 3 [...]

(coming soon)
For the first ever SUBWAY Monthly newsletter, I’m thinking of creating the greatest list of subway riding tips ever.  I’m not sure how I’m going to aggregate it just yet.  Or even how it will be arranged.  Luckily, I have a lot of ideas.

It’s total bull.
So it should make this morning’s commute a gem.  Actually, what will really be interesting is when it all [...]

Subway iPhone Game

Posted on February 1st, 2009 by The SUBWAYblogger in Rider Strategy

Have you played Subway Shuffle for iPhone/iTouch?  It’s pretty damn addictive.
It’s sort of Rubik’s cube like.  Maybe not.  It’s sort of hard to describe, but I will try.
Basically, you have to move your “train” from one end of the puzzle board to the destination.  Along the way, you can only travel on your own line [...]

Welcome to Monday boys and girls.  Get back to work!
It’s going to be cold later this week.  With the exception of a quick spike to 42 degrees on Tuesday, it is going to gradually get colder.  Friday, we could be looking at a high of only 13.
I for one say GOOD!  I’d like to go [...]
