Yes, buses and subways. If you transfer from the bus to the subway or bus route A to bus route B, they will charge you a transfer on your card, not taking away any $ amount from the Metrocard. So let's say you're traveling with 3 people. You dip in your Metrocard in the bus 3 times or slide it 3 times on the subway. When you transfer to the bus from the subway or from bus route A to bus route B, all you have to do is dip it in once in the bus and the machine will read the 3 transfers. If you're transferring to the subway, I believe you just slide the card one and it will read the 3 transfers as well and just go through the turnstile.

I am endlessly fascinated by websites that offer transit directions. Perhaps I am a dinosaur (even if not, then I'm definitely a Neanderthal!) but I thought that's what the subway and/or bus map did.
