The A Eighth Avenue Express and C Eighth Avenue Local are two services of the New York City Subway. They are colored blue, since they use the IND Eighth Avenue Line through midtown Manhattan. The longest one-seat ride on the subway system is on the A, 31 miles (50 km) from Inwood to Far Rockaway. The normal A service pattern is from Inwood-207th Street to Ozone Park-Lefferts Boulevard or Far Rockaway-Mott Avenue, running express in Manhattan and Brooklyn; some rush hour trips run to Rockaway Park-Beach 116th Street; the S Rockaway Park Shuttle goes there all the time. C trains run local along this route from Washington Heights-168th Street to Euclid Avenue, which is exactly where the A runs express. At late nights, C service doesn't run, and A service runs local, and only on the branch to Far Rockaway; a special shuttle (the Lefferts Boulevard Shuttle) runs from Euclid Avenue to Lefferts Boulevard.
