One of the interesting things about most people in New York City is their amazing command of the intricacies involved in their transportation system. They know how long it takes to reach certain parts of the city given the time of day. They know the train schedules, and they know how weather will affect street traffic, and more. This comes from years of living in and listening to their city.
Those who are visiting Brooklyn for the first time will not have this understanding, but that doesn't mean that it's difficult to move around the city. Brooklyn has a wide variety of transportation that visitors and locals can use. With so many options, you will never have to worry about being stranded.
One of the simplest forms of travel throughout the city is the taxis that are always roving the streets and looking for people who need a ride. The taxis are plentiful, and they are easy to hail, or you can call them and schedule a pickup. Of course, the taxis cost more than the other types of Brooklyn transit you can find.
The bus lines run all through Brooklyn, and transportation is easy on the large city buses. However, you will have to pick up a bus schedule or find one on the web so you know which bus to take and where to switch buses. Still, they are more affordable than the cabs. If you are going to be in the city for an extended visit, you might want to consider getting a bus pass.
Of course, most people who come to NYC will want to ride the subway, and fortunately, the subway lines connect Brooklyn to the rest of NY. Getting to all of the places you want to be is fast and easy with the help of the subway.
