    New York City Transportation

    Now, I am far from being an expert in how to get around on the New York subway system. I rode the subway plenty in my day (I used to take the Flushing train to Manhattan several times a week as a teenager) but that was decades ago. Even then, I would goof on occasion, ending up in all sorts of places where it was not really safe for a skinny blonde...

However, if you are a senior, paying per ride is probably cheapest—it is only 40¢ per trip, with free transfers. (You need to show a Medicare card or other ID as proof of...

    San Francisco Transportation

    I'd been told that SF's cablecars were usually crowded and thus difficult to get on. I was expecting that to be the case, especially as i visited in July (plenty of visitors).
