I'm afraid I jumped the gun. There's still an hour left in the day, but I don't think it will open today. Sorry, guys.

The opening date has NOT been officially announced yet, but if there are NO MORE delays, expect sometime around August.

What's the longest ride you can take on the New York subway? The MTA website says it's a 38-mile trip from 241st Street in the Bronx to Far Rockaway, but we think we can do better. We found a route between those same two stations that covers over 148 miles of track. It uses every subway line at least once and requires 45 transfers.

UPDATE 4:05 PM: Our 148-mile route was based on four computers checking 200 billion possibilities and counting. But using this page, someone's browser found an even longer route today: 154.6 miles with 54 transfers! We've verified that route, and mapped it here:

With a lot of transfer, you can go far.

This is amazing, revealing numerous parallel routes in the system. Is there any requirement for passengers to travel with the fastest route as a fare evasion prevention policy?

The rules...

Quote:
Rules for a Data News-approved longest subway ride

You can visit the same station as many times as you want.

You can make any station-to-station transfer that's marked as a free transfer on the subway map.

You can only ride each segment of the subway map once. A segment is basically anything that looks like one segment on the map. If any two lines go between station A and station B, and they don't diverge in between, that's one segment.

Once you've ridden a segment, you can't backtrack in the opposite direction. If you take the R north from Bay Ridge - 95 St, you can't take it back south.

Once you've taken the local, you can't take the express, and vice versa. If you take the E from 14 St to 34 St - Penn Station, you can't take the A between them later.

If there's more than one line, but they run side-by-side on the map, that's still one segment. The E, F, M and R between Jackson Heights and Forest Hills are one segment together. The B and Q from Prospect Park to Brighton Beach are one segment together.

We're choosing to ignore the existence of the West 8 St - NY Aquarium and Sutphin Blvd - Archer Av stations for simplicity's sake.

We assume that every standard line is running in its entirety, including the shuttles.

The AirTrain isn't a subway line. Don't be ridiculous.

In addition to including the M86 Select Bus Service, the new Manhattan bus map out today for the first time acknowledges the 7 train extension.
