Green and red lamps outside subway entrances and exits

Recommended Posts

At most of the NYC subway entrances and exits there are green and red lamps. I know that green means a 24/7 entrance and booth, red means either a part-time booth or no booth, hence either exit-only or entrance with MetroCard. Is it right?

Used to be, but I don't think it mean anything anymore. There are I believe no more part time booths, and some of those entrance with Metrocard entry only have green lights

They used to have yellow also, for something inbetween; either part time, or a high wheel entrance, where there was no fare booth, and you could only enter if you already had a token. (and red was exit only).

That’s what they mean?

All this time I thought it was green for local-only and red/orange for express.

Yup... Hardly anyone pays attention though...

Yes.  The old yellow lights (for part-time entrances) were replaced with red and then not put back to yellow "because nobody complained."
