QUESTION: I'm not sure.  I'm going to be visiting the city and I'm wondering if there is one particular line that a person can catch from the Upper West Side down to Tribeca?

The #1 goes directly to TriBeCa but it is a local which means that it makes more stops. Depending on where you get on, you could take the #2 or 3, which are express, and then change to the #1 to make faster time.

Check out for information on the subways and buses and get lots of visitor and discount tips too!

Hope that helps.
