NEW YORK, New York (WABC) -- The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is celebrating a big day Thursday.
New York City Transit President Richard Davey and the MTA marked the 118th anniversary of the NYC subway.
Davey greeted subway riders and employees in the Bronx, Queens, and Manhattan Thursday morning.
According to New York City Transit, its system includes more than 6,400 subway cars, which traveled about 331 million miles last year.
There are 472 subway stations with tracks spanning 665 miles.
"The subway system is an engineering marvel that has come a long way since 1904, and there's still a long way to go," Davey said. "Our team at New York City Transit is working every day to make the system faster, cleaner and safer for the next 118 years."
