Whether it’s due to signal malfunctions or sudden health emergencies, delays are generally expected to occur, and commuters are often faced with a tough choice when that happens: they can either opt for taxi or hop out of the station and walk. The latter option, while not ideal for all, does have its perks. Not only is it a free method of transportation, it’s also good for burning off some additional calories — in the event you’re wondering exactly how many, there’s a new subway map that outlines it all for us. Created by UK-based pharmacy site, Treated.com, this New York City map shows the calories a person can burn by walking between subway stops. Taking a stroll between 14 St. Union Square to 8 St. NYU, for instance, burns a whopping 45 calories, while a leisurely jaunt from Astor Pl. to Bleeker Street cuts off 31 calories.
