ⓘ New York City Subway rolling stock

As of November 2016, the New York City Subway has 6418 cars on the roster. The system maintains two separate fleets of passenger cars: one for the A Division routes, the other for the B Division routes. All A Division equipment is approximately 8 feet 9 inches 2.67 m wide and 51 feet 15.54 m long. B Division cars, on the other hand, are about 10 feet 3.05 m wide and either 60 feet 6 inches 18.44 m or 75 feet 6 inches 23.01 m long. The 75 foot cars, such as R44s, R46s, R68s, and R68As, are not permitted on BMT Eastern Division – the J, L, M and Z trains – because of sharper curves on those tracks.

In 2001, the New city transit authority York city began recycling of retired subway cars throwing them into the sea to create artificial reefs with the aim of promoting the development of marine life. This option was chosen because it was cheaper than removing asbestos from cars, asbestos was determined not to be a danger in the ocean. In addition, the artificial reefs will provide environmental and economic benefits, such as providing shelter for marine animals and create new opportunities for fishing. First built reef was Redbird reef in Delaware. In the end, a few States received pensions of subway cars on the reefs. The program was discontinued in 2010, after were swindlers because newer cars contain more plastic, which was too expensive to economically remove the fluting in front of more than 2.500 cars.
