Transit Talks on Senior Wednesdays

May 3, 2017 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free for Seniors
A view of the train platform at the Transit Museum.

Do you remember the IRT? Did you ride the BMT? Where did the IND take you? The subway was once three separate systems, operated by three different companies. Come and share your memories of riding the rails and join us for a tour of the difference between the IRT, the BMT and the IND subway cars in our collection.

With Senior Wednesdays at the New York Transit Museum, you can relive the experience of traveling through New York City during the early, mid and late twentieth century! Explore our hands-on collection of vintage subway and elevated cars and exhibits that share the rich story of public transportation. Discover the history, technology, design and future of transportation. This program is presented as part of the Transit Museum’s Senior Wednesdays initiative. Individuals age 62 or older receive free admission every Wednesday, and special programs and tours like this on select days (excludes senior group visits). No pre-registration is required.
