There are subway systems in several cities in the US. New York City has an
extensive and rather complicated rapid transit system. Each train is
designated by a letter or a number, but most New Yorkers refer to them by such
names as the Broadway Local and the 6th Avenue Express. It is important to
remember that both local and express trains operate on some lines. You must
have a token or, in some cases, the exact change to get on the platforms.
Subway maps are available at most token booths.
