Improving efficiency, introducing new technology and dealing with the events of 9/11 on the New York City Subway system

New York City Transit operates one of the largest subway and bus mass transit systems in world. We have the most stations of any municipal rail system: 468. Our rail routes stretch over 230 miles, and since they have from two to four track ways, our mainline revenue track and switches total 648 miles. Our fleet of nearly 4,500 buses, operating on 242 routes, links up with our subway system at many points, and riders can transfer from bus to subway or from subway to bus for the price of one fare. Our subway system alone carried 1.4 billion riders last year.
