Subway Sandwich Bread to No Longer Contain Chemical Found in Yoga Mats

Subway has been feeding us yoga mats. Well, to be specific: The bread at the sandwich chain’s American locations carries a chemical that is also found in yoga mats and sneaker soles for elasticity. This does not happen in Subways abroad, but the company is ditching it here in the good ol' USA, isn’t that nice? » 2/07/14 12:00pm 2/07/14 12:00pm

Subway is making official Hunger Games sandwiches like it's not insane

So I was all set to joke about how Subway would tie their crappy sandwiches into a movie where kids compete in a brutal contest for the amusement of the rich, and where a brutal revolution might be the only solution, and then I saw the above commercial where they actually fucking did it. » 11/08/13 10:24am 11/08/13 10:24am

Guy Loves Cheese So Much He Eats a Wheel of Brie on the Subway

Yo, I know you thought your week was shaping up pretty good, so I hate to break it to you like this, but what's actually been going on is that your entire existence has been hot garbage up until this moment.

Rude PDA on the Subway, Ranked from RUDE to VERY RUDE

Trains are often thought of as romantic places; in trains, beautiful humans have intrigues and kiss each other and cry and eat croissants or whatever. Subways, though, are different story. Subway travel is train travel's depraved little brother who owns The Wicker Man (Nic Cage version) on Blu-ray and pees in a Fanta… » 9/20/13 2:40pm 9/20/13 2:40pm

Subway Shuts Down After Adorable Kittens Get Loose on Tracks

Miss Subway Exhibit Will Grace Brooklyn’s Transit Museum Next Month

Raquel Welch Dances with Leather Daddies While Waiting for the Subway…

Why is it that when people wax rhapsodic about the gritty New York of the '70s and '80s, they always manage to leave out the part about how waiting for the subway used lead to choreographed dance sequences with a variety of ethnic stereotypes? Knowing this, the nostalgia makes a lot more sense. » 8/17/12 5:00pm 8/17/12 5:00pm

Video Evidence That Keanu Reeves Is Truly A Gentleman

Some New Yorker with a camera happened to be riding on the exact same train as none other than Keanu Reeves and, acting on an impulse that most of us try to ignore, filmed the entire train ride with his phone.

Jake Gyllenhall Spotted On The Subway, Nation Sleeps Through It

Earlier this year, Jake Gyllenhaal was photographed on the Q train. Now he's been spotted on the New York subway system again, and somehow another passenger sitting mere inches from this dreamboat was sleeping.
