"Shit, that's the cocksucker Johnny ripped off for the diamond loot! Why don't we see if he can keep up with some real American bikers?!"
Jim Fitzgerald

No Way on the Subway is a mission in Grand Theft Auto IV, given to Niko Bellic by Ray Boccino. The mission is also the first appearance of Phil Bell.


The mission begins with Ray and Phil Bell informing Niko that the money and the diamonds are missing (Johnny Klebitz stole the money during the bungled deal in the museum and Luis Lopez stole the diamonds). Ray orders Niko to deal with two bikers from The Lost MC, who are hanging around on Vauxite Street in Northwood.

Niko heads to an alley just off Vauxite Street, where he confronts the two bikers. The bikers escape and Niko steals a nearby bike to give chase to them. A short time later, the two bikers ride off a bridge and down onto the subway line, with Niko following them.

The unnamed biker is killed shortly after dropping onto the line (either by Niko or by crashing head-on into a passing train). After the unnamed biker has been killed, Fitzgerald leaves the railway line and gets back onto the street whilst still being pursued by Niko. Eventually, Niko catches up to and kills Fitzgerald. Niko phones Ray to inform him of Fitzgerald's death and the mission is completed.

Mission objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to where the members of The Lost are hanging out
  • Take the bike
  • Chase and take out the bikers


Liberty Tree Newspaper

"Passengers on the subway between Algonquin and Dukes saw an unusual sight earlier - members of The Lost biker gang in a dramatic fight for their lives. The bikers entered the tunnel system in North Holland and sped along the tracks at high speed, weaving between oncoming trains and exchanging gunfire. An uncorfirmed witness reports that were three bikers involved in the chase. Two bodies have so far been recovered. One being identified as Jim Fitzgerald, a member of the Alderney chapter of The Lost. Police are struggling to identify the other one. Authorities are appealing to other members of The Lost and their rival biker club, the Angels of Death, for any information."

  • If the un-named biker is killed by the subway train, Niko will say one of two unique lines of extra dialogue: "Was that the Uptown J train?" or "Shit, your friend's body is gonna be smeared from here to Northwood!"
  • If the player pulls Jim off his bike, he will pull out a pistol and will try to kill Niko.
  • Niko is originally sent to kill Johnny for stealing the money, but while Niko is chasing Jim, Ray sent some of his men to deal with Johnny instead. When Niko calls Ray after killing Jim, and reporting Johnny missing, Ray informs Niko not to worry about it.
  • It is possible, through a glitch, that after chasing Jim for the scripted route, he will act as a normal pedestrian on a bike, but will still taunt Niko.
  • Before the chase starts, Jim will say that Johnny had told him about Niko. However, in The Lost and Damned, Johnny never mentions Niko to Jim or any other The Lost MC member.
  • When driving inside the Subway, the trains travel much slower than in regular gameplay.
  • In The Lost and Damned, Jim Fitzgerald is Hispanic and has very closely cut dark hair. In this mission, however, his character model is a heavyset bald Caucasian with greying ginger hair.
  • The subway trains have unique horns during this mission, which also can be heard in the mission For the Man Who Has Everything which features in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
  • Upon entering the tunnel, the game instructs the player to press a button to turn on the bike's headlight. However, the headlight will automatically turn on.
  • If the player kills the unnamed biker passing the derailed train on the Algonquin Bridge, there will be an option allowing the player to enter the derailed train. However, this is not possible as it is only a glitch. Additionally, leaving the area then returning to it will remove the derailed train but will leave the damaged steel pole there.
  • If the player crashes in the subway while chasing the bikers, their bike will disappear. This does not happen all the time however.
  • The GTA IV version of Jim can be seen next to the TLAD version of Jim in Was It Worth It?. This is a minor mistake, as the unnamed Biker was supposed to be there.
  • Despite the player being prompted to take the bike and chase the bikers, the player can use a car instead. Using a car will make the mission easier as the player will not be dismounted, though a car is not as versatile as the bike.
  • This is the last appearance of The Lost MC in GTA IV.
