Orange, Blue or Yellow or a combination of them. I dont understand why people who want a yellow train wont get on a Blue train and ride it until it is underground and warmer and switch trains there. I also go ahead a stop or two when I need to switch trains. No sense in standing in a cold station when I can sit in a cold train and hop off and get the tube going in my direction. I wish people wouldnt puke so much on the platforms, though.

I love it that some cities have run out of colors so they have to might "light" versions. I think London has lite blue lines.

At some point, I have to ride most of them. The one I take most often is the D train.

For work: mostly, 6, sometime 4/5, F or V. Around town I often take the R/W, switch to Q for Brooklyn treks, 1/9 for the UWS. I'm close to all these lines, so they are all options.

That's quite a trick to take the 9 train!
