Shuttle-ing - a NYC Subwayscape
It's rush our on a Monday evening in the Shuttle terminal at Grand Central Terminal.
The Times Square/Grand Central Shuttle, or 42nd St Shuttle, is the shortest
and certainly one of the busiest lines in the New York City Subway system.
In its 90-second non-stop trip, it connects the East Side and West Side lines
of the underground rail system, as well as providing connections to bus service at the
Port Authority Terminal and Metro North commuter train service at Grand Central. It also
connects at both ends to the (*) 7 Train (Hudson Yards/34th St to Flushing, Queens).
Whether at the 42nd Street/Times Square end or at Grand Central, it is a non-stop
hive of activity, operating with three tracks. Thus, it is never necessary to wait for an
arriving train to unload its passengers, as there is always another train waiting to depart.
