Full Answer

The New York City subway is part of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority. Each subway line is assigned a color as well as a letter or number. The color and letter or number represent the route (or line) the train follows. Additionally, the maps clearly label stops along each train's line. Users who have difficulty with the map and have Internet access via a smart phone or computer can input an origin and destination into the Metropolitan Transit Authority website's trip planner and receive precise instructions about which trains to take.
