During my years in New York I don't recall hearing anyone call the city
subway system "the tube," but I did learn that what is today the PATH
system connecting NYC and New Jersey used to be called "The Hudson Tubes."
I don't know whether this system was referred to colloquially as "the
tube," or "the tubes," at that time.
