Anyone have experience with the subway? I'm strongly considering flying and taking the subway rather than renting a car.

Any advice is appreciated.

I stayed at the union station and took the subway back and forth. Never had any issues

Yeah the subway was not a problem at all for me last year...pretty easy, just read the maps and pay attention to what cars you are getting on. Didn't do any late night so I cant vouch for that...but seemed fine otherwise.

Also, dont try to take photos down there. I was trying to take some pics of the tunnels (from the waiting area) and then textures on the older walls and a security officer all but tackled me telling me that photography in the Subway system is strictly forbidden because I could be a terrorist researching. I couldnt help but laugh, but they were quite serious.

The Metro (as us locals call it) is fine for to-from airport travel and from what I have heard from you guys, is ok for some downtown travel as well.

I personally try to never take it at night - at least as a single white female. Just be alert and aware. Go in costume. :)
