  NY Public Transport 

METRO:

The subway system in New York is the fastest way to access almost anywhere. It has almost 500 stations which you can move in and out of Manhattan on the same ticket. It operates 24 hours a day. It is relatively easy, but sometimes it can be complicated. Our best advice is that when you are not sure, always enquire. 
Prices:

  • Single ticket: $ 2, 
  • Daily Pass: U.S. $ 7.50 
  • Weekly Pass: $ 25 
  • 14 days: $ 47 
BUS:

The bus stops are clearly marked with map and are frequent. The frequency is pretty good but obviously, at night, there are fewer buses. 
To access them you need a MetroCard or pay the driver $ 2, 
They are operated by the transport company of the city, MTA (Metropolitan Transpor Authority), the same network that controls the subway. 

TAXI:

There are plenty of taxis in New York. But it's hard to find one when it is raining or during peak hours (between 5 and 7 pm). Just getting into the taxi costs $ 2.50, and it is about a dollar for every kilometer. Overall, the typical journey is about $ 9. Remember to tip the driver, if not he will be furious. Typically you round it up to the next dollar.

Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Madison Avenue, SoHo ... you decide!
