  7. Matt MacDougall says

    I've never seen such a low IQ comment section. She obviously knows that people say train, since she says it herself about 50 times in the video. When she said that she just meant what the system as a whole is called: Tube/Underground in London, Metro in Paris, Subway in New York.

  10. Sean Gunnells says

    "manspreading" isn't a thing. We have balls between our legs. It's the equivalent of saying "Suck your tits in lady"

  11. Koala Phiêu Diêu says

    This's the worst and most stupid/confusing train system in the world yet it's a symbol of the most famous city in the world. New Yorkers, come to Sydney and try to learn from our fantastic trains systems.

  14. Nigel Nevin FREE SNOWDEN AND ASSANGE says

    Messy, filthy, chaotic, the NY subway is like from the stone age…. sometimes rats can be found on the train.

  15. Jairo Escobar zuluaga says

    I am from Colombia. Aún conservo la tarjeta de METROCARD con la que me desplacé en el metro de New York, la última semana de diciembre de 2005, cuando estuve allá paseando.

  16. Star Wars Nerd says


    Very, very bad idea, unless you don't want your stuff

  17. Daniel Boutwell says

    You had me until the manspreading comment. Those men were not doing anything wrong.

  18. Kate Taylor says

    So basically if you're disabled don't even bother!

  20. Martin Shore says

    I just saw a video where you had a face mask with map of MTA on it. Where did you purchase it? Thanks.

  21. charlotte x says

    the reason i like ur video is the subtitles, good job !!!!!

  22. ruzzell907 says

    MTA workers that work in the booth have a simple job but take it for granted, they treat their customers poorly and they're extremely rude. Simply asking for help means getting screamed at, and all they do is just sit there, but not all, but many just have this behavior that they don't want to be bothered at all.
    I am discouraged to ask for assistance by MTA workers that work in the booth. They're supposed to serve the public, yet they lack proper etiquette and good customer service. Typical of the public sector.

  23. David Villa says

    4:10 that’s lies you don’t have to pay more because if u go downtown when u wanna go uptown you can take one stop downtown and get off and go from their to the uptown

  29. David W says

    The subway system of Toronto has less confusing names for stations, making it easier to distinguish among stations on the same street e.g. among those located on
    – Dundas St.: Dundas, St. Patrick and Dundas West
    – Eglinton: Kennedy (Eglinton East), Eglinton and Eglinton West
    – Sheppard: Sheppard West (formerly Downsview), Sheppard-Yonge
