New York City 

Getting In

By Car

Driving in New York City is challenging with the city’s congested traffic, confusing parking rules, and sometimes aggressive drivers. The city’s efficient public transport system of commuter trains and buses offer better options with significant advantages in saving time and money. There are also the yellow cabs and livery cars to get you around the city. If you decide to drive, get a good map, especially if driving in the city’s outer boroughs i.e. Brooklyn, Queens, The Bronx, and Staten Island
