For subway riding city-dwellers in the New York, DC, London, Boston, San Fran and Chicago areas, check out HopStop. It maps the easiest and quickest routes to and from metropolitan destinations. Obviously it’s no secret that subways are cheaper – and often faster – than cabs, but for those of us who are often overwhelmed by the prospect of heading underground to get uptown, HopStop makes the whole process a lot more pleasurable by mapping out a path beforehand. So, it’s not exactly feasting on the cheap, but rather traveling on the cheap, which is good enough for me.
