One of the more frequent emails SUBWAYblogger receives has to do with the plethora of subway related iPhone apps.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there are more iPhones out on the subway than ever.  All of a sudden, everywhere you look, someone is rocking out on one.  They’re either listening to music, watching a [...]

Maybe next time, take a cab?
Jeanie Colberg was on the 4 train with her young daughter on the way to the hospital yesterday when her water broke.
Luckily, a good samaritan was there to comfort her and calm her down a bit.  At Union Square, EMS workers were there to handle the rest.  She ended up [...]

Things are finally calming down, so we’re hoping [...]

Subway (and bus) ridership in 2008 hit an all time high according to a report released by the MTA.
There were 2.37 billion subway and bus rides.  That’s billion with a B.  Billion.  Can you even fathom that number?  It blows my mind.
That big number represents a 3.1% increase.
Of that, there were 1.62 billion subway rides, [...]

Around 7:30am, a report of a person struck by a train went out across police radios.
The incident occurred around 116th Street & Broadway on the Uptown 1 line.  The thing we find odd is the report that the person was dead on arrival between 116th and 125th.  That makes it sound like the person may [...]

Dibble was drunk at the time and reportedly had a BAC of .18.

They found that the train [...]
