One of the advantages of living in New York is the public transit system. With myriad buses and trains, you can get anywhere you want for $2.50 each way. But navigating the rush hour commute can be confusing and even painful until you’re a veteran. To make your time on public transit run smoothly, here are my 9 bits of advice for the newbie NYC subway commuter.
1. Do a practice run.
Actors, athletes, and even politicians rehearse, and so should you. If you have a transfer, take some time the weekend before and map out your route.

You have now graduated from the little kids table to the adult table, so do your homework and be prepared.
