Using 在哪儿 as a question. How do I ask?: Do you know where the subway is? 你知不知道地铁在哪儿? or 你知道地铁在哪儿吗? Or is there another way to ask this question? Please correct my Chinese. Thanks for your help.

你知不知道地铁在哪儿?→I wonder whether you know where the subway is or not? 你知道地铁在哪儿吗?→Do you know where the subway is? The 2 sentences have the same meaning as a matter of fact and 2nd one sounds more native But if I ask someone where the subway is,I'd like to say: 请问,您知道地铁在哪吗? Cuz you have to show your respect to the one asked in Chn

They are definitely same. 你知不知道地铁在哪儿?=你知道地铁在哪儿吗?=你知道不知道地铁在哪儿?=地铁在哪儿?你知道吗?=你能告诉我地铁在哪儿吗?=请问地铁在哪? The key phrase is just ”地铁在哪?“, the rest part is changeable.
