YORK CITY SUBWAY
Over the years,NYCTA
has been upgrading its network image, including safer Subway trains
and stations, new MetroCard Vending Machines, easier-to-read maps,
and cleaner trains. Much of the fleet was filthy and covered in
graffiti in the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, and the Subway
cars had many breakdowns. Since 1989, all cars have been graffiti-free,
and are well-maintained and air-conditioned or heated as necessary.
