To dream of being on or in the subway portends a series of minor setbacks and/or petty disappointments. Don’t get discouraged; they will soon be a faded memory.

An underground world of its own, the subway system in any city can get you from one place to another without seeing the light of day.

Any travel from one place to another in a dream represents a change or transformation.

Since a subway ride is relatively short, the scope of the change it represents is also relatively minor. The idea that is being represented the most by this image in a dream has to do with being just under the surface of your consciousness.

Such a dream indicates that you can learn something by doing a little investigation of what is lurking below and find yourself in some new territory as a result.
