About the Subway
It connects central Algonquin Island with the other parts of town, which are named Bohan, Broker, and Dukes. Simply jump on one of the frequented lines and you will get where you need in a little while.
LTA – The Liberty City Transport Authority is the company that operates the subway in Liberty City.
When you sit in a subway car, you have two alternatives. You can sit next to a window and look out, or you can quickly skip the trip and you will get control over Niko again as soon as you leave at the next station.
Unlike Carl Johns from San Andreas, Niko doesn’t have sufficient qualifications to conduct a train, so you are simply a passenger. The subway has two major routes:
The green and red line connects Algonquin, Dukes, and Broker. Thanks to extensions, the line runs as far as Francis International Airport, the most frequently used transportation hub. The airport is built on the most eastern point of the city, and the subway is used by tourists and workers to travel to Algonquin. When you find a place in the train for your baggage (good luck!), you will move from the airport to Lynch Street, a station associated with the World's Fair many years ago. But the Fair is gone, so you don’t have a reason to get off, unless you only want to visit local residences. A little bit further is Huntington Street, the last station in Dukes. If you think the walk around massive Middle Park will be too much for you, take a short walk north from here to Meadows Park. Its unusual shape and paved roads are ideal for running events, and it is also home to the well-known sight – the Monoglobe. If you are a normal tourist, visit the west coast of Dukes for the first view of skyscrapers and a gorgeous skyline. You won’t like the feeling that you have a worse view from the bridge than the cars that are above the trains.
Are there still some people here who would like to visit Alderney? If yes, they get off at Vauxite or Quartz West. These stations afford an easy access to Booth Tunnel, which connects Alderney with Algonquin. If you get off here, simply catch a taxi.
The yellow and blue line connects Algonquin with Bohan, the northernmost island. The rails run in both directions. Yellow trains travel on the inside circuit clockwise and blue trains are the opposite. There are two main stations here – Easton and Frankfort. Getting out at these stations lets you change to the red and green line, which connects Dukes, Algonquin, and Broker.
The station Frankfort Avenue offers easy access to the cultural area around the Burlesque. You will absolutely agree that this station is the most sophisticated of all thanks to its position by Star Junction. It is a staggering piece of modern art.
The main part of the line goes around Middle Park. It encompasses no less than three stations by the biggest public place in Liberty City. They are called West Park, North Park, and East Park.
