Encyclopedia > Interborough Rapid Transit Company

The Interborough Rapid Transit Company (IRT) was the operator of the original New York Subway line that opened in 1904 and additional rapid transit lines in the City of New York.


The IRT was purchased by the City in 1940. The former IRT lines (the numbered lines in the current subway system) are now the IRT Division of the New York City Transit Authority, also known as the A Division.

Chapter 1: Dual System of Rapid Transit (4292 words)
The existing rapid transit lines which will be embraced in the new system have 296 miles of single track.
The need for additional rapid transit is shown by the fact that all of these avenues of transportation were congested during the rush hours and that the congestion is increasing from year to year.
The Brooklyn company is also to operate a new subway under 14th Street, Manhattan, with a tunnel under the East River to the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn and East New York.
