How energy efficient is the New York subway?



  1. 0 Votes

    As of the last research done, the New York subway system uses 3492 BTU’s per passenger. Although this barely compares favorably to the car efficiency of the entire United States, in New York gridlock this is significantly more efficient than driving a car.

    I hope this helped!

    As far as other, newer mass transit systems such as the light rails of Los Angeles, or Portland, the New York system is very inefficient (one reason for this is because the system is so old). However, its is MUCH better than people taking cars.
