A subway system has somehow appeared, even though the City Council never approved it. Cecil, however, is very pleased at the idea of Night Vale having a mass transit system and encourages it's use.
Tropes present in Subway include:
- Continuity Nod: Svitz, one of the fictitious countries Cecil mentions visiting in "A Memory of Europe", is on Cecil's list of travel destinations.
- Suspiciously Specific Denial: The City Police would like to remind you that the citizens of Night Vale are not eating each other, and that there is no reason to tell you about the nonexistent increase in consensual cannibalism.
- Year Inside, Hour Outside: The subway system.
