The longest run distance wise is the (A) from 207 Street Manhattan, through Central Park West/8 Avenue, tunnels beneath the East River then via IND Fulton Street in Brooklyn, then goes to Queens turns to the Rockaways while passing the JFK Airport.

 

31 miles, and a two hour and a half train ride for the (A).

Definitely the (A), schedule shows average daytime length of about 1 hour and 11 minutes, but 31 miles is the absolute longest any single train travels by far.

 

BUT, the (2) is being shown to take an average of an hour and a half travelling it's distance, mainly because it's local for longer. Same with the (D) actually, about an hour and a half from about the middle of the Bronx to the bottom of Brooklyn. All times based on the MTA.info schedules. Depending on the time of day, usually these rides take much longer end-to-end...

Is it the (A) between 207th and the Rockaways?

The (D) between Norwood/205th and Coney Island?

Or the (2) between 241st and Flatbush?

 

I'm assuming its the (A), right?

 

In terms of distance, it's the A train...

This is fact.

 

 

In terms of time, it just might be the 2 train...

That is my opinion.

2nd longest: (2) from Wakefield-241st Street to Flatbush Avenue

 

3rd longest: (F) from Jamaica-179th Street to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue

 

4th longest: (4) from Woodlawn-Jerome Avenue to Crown Heights-Utica Avenue or New Lots Avenue

 

5th longest: (D) from Norwood-205th Street to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue

 

The (F) from 179th Street-Jamaica to Stillwell Avenue-Coney Island is 27.40 miles, while the (2) from E 241st Street, Wakefield to Flatbush Avenue, Brooklyn is 25.75 Miles. The (D) from 205th Street, Norwood to Coney Island-Stillwell Avenue is 25.88 Miles. So obviously, the (D) & (F) is longer than the (2). (The (D) is slighty longer than the (2).)

we all know what is the longest line and/or run, but can anyone tell me which one is the shortest non-shuttle route?

 

The (G) from Court Square, Queens to Smith-9 Street, Brooklyn. It's about 7.14 Miles.

that too, and i am sure the (7) and (L) are among them as well.

 

The late night (3) from 148th Street-Lenox Term to Times Square-42nd Street is about 6.30 Miles

 

The (G) from Court Square, Queens to Smith-9 Street, Brooklyn is 7.14 Miles.

 

The (7)<7> from Main Street, Flushing to Times Square, Manhattan is 9.54 Miles.

 

The (L) from 8th Avenue to Rockaway Parkway, Canarsie is 10.24 miles.

 

So yeah, the late night (3) is the shortest non-shuttle in the (NYCT).
