Taxi

Taxi

You enjoy comfort, but don't need to break the bank to achieve it. Sometimes you panic when you’re in a rush and hail a car, but fail to look ahead at the bumper-to-bumper traffic. You enjoy having conversations with the drivers about where they're from and how long they've been here.

Walker

Walker

You think of transit as an experience. The physicality of getting from A to B on your own two feet is a mere cherry on top of the intrigue you find poking your head in storefront windows and eyeing an old married couple stumbling past you having an argument. You also may be a bit stubborn and at times unnecessarily self-reliant.

Uber

Uber

You don't mind spending an extra buck, but are also partial to a good deal. Prepared to look or feel classy for a date or night on the town, what's better than having a black car at your service with the press of a button? Sometimes it’s a bit too easy and you see a surcharge bill before going to bed and remember you're not made of money.

Subway

Subway

You just can't see why not. It's efficient, often faster than a car, and also the “most New York” way to get around New York. Millions upon millions of people doing every job imaginable collectively sustaining the intangible allure that makes NYC like no other place on earth, squeezing hurriedly into subway cars around the clock. (You also don't want to or can't fork up the dough for rides everywhere you go, because if you could, you might)

Limo

Limo

You just don't give a hoot. Whatever you've earned or been given is plenty reason to treat your daily commute to style and luxury. Stretch your legs and pour a stiff cocktail from the minibar and see the bustling city surrounded through tinted windows. When visiting New York City, you're not exploring, you're conquering.

Driver

Driver

You love the control of the wheel and could care less about people saying it's a nightmare to have a car in the city. Everywhere you travel, you rent a ride so that you can go where you want when you want. Driving is a way to curate the travels of your friends, loved ones and yourself. You pick the music, the parking space and miles per hour.
