The current New York City Transit Authority rail system map; Queens is located to the center and right portion of the map.

The New York City Subway is a rapid transit system that serves four of the five boroughs of New York City in the U.S. state of New York: the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens. Operated by the New York City Transit Authority under the Metropolitan Transportation Authority of New York, the New York City Subway is the busiest rapid transit system in the United States and the fourth busiest in the world, with 5.225 million daily riders. The system's 468 stations qualifies it to have the largest number of rapid transit stations in the world.

Three rapid transit companies merged in 1940 to create the present New York City Subway system: the Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT), the Brooklyn–Manhattan Transit Corporation (BMT), and the Independent Subway System (IND). All three former systems are present in Queens.

Notes

  1. ^ a b As the J/Z combined is a skip-stop service, an "express-local" station in this sense means both services stop at the station during the hours of skip-stop operation.
  2. ^ a b The 2 platform sets of the 23rd Street – Ely Avenue / Court Square station complex counts as one station when compared to international standards.
  3. ^ a b c An out-of-system connection between 45th Road – Court House Square and the 23rd Street – Ely Avenue / Court Square station complex can be made with a MetroCard. As the transfer requires leaving and reentering fare control, the 45th Road – Court House Square station is not officially included as part of a station complex. An enclosed passageway connecting the 45th Road elevated station to the underground station complex is being constructed as of 2010.
  4. ^ a b The 2 platform sets of the Jackson Heights – Roosevelt Avenue / 74th Street – Broadway station complex counts as one station when compared to international standards.
  5. ^ The Aqueduct Racetrack station is open only during racing days at the Aqueduct Racetrack. The platform is on the northbound side only.
  6. ^ The Mets – Willets Point station is disability-accessible on the northbound side platform only. Northbound local trains will open their doors on this platform during New York Mets game days and special events only.
  7. ^ The transfer at Rockaway Boulevard is between A trains going to/from Ozone Park – Lefferts Boulevard and A trains going to/from Far Rockaway – Mott Avenue or Rockaway Park – Beach 116th Street.
