Join us once a month for Transit After-Hours: a series of conversations, presentations, workshops, and performances inspired by Transit Museum exhibitions and collections. Come together online, share ideas, and learn about transit and NYC history.  


Last stop, bottom of the ocean! Between August 2001 and April 2010, MTA New York City Transit deployed more than 2,500 deaccessioned train cars to underwater locations off the coasts of New Jersey, Delaware, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia. Forming artificial reefs, the cleaned shells of these subway cars created a flourishing new habitat for varied sea life and improved nautical environments in areas of the ocean floor that were once barren deserts.   

 

Join us after-hours for a panel discussion with key individuals behind the Artificial Reefing Program: former Program Director, Michael  Zacchea, and Robert  Martore, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources Artificial Reef Program Manager. Together, we will discover the intricacies behind this unprecedented recycling program that provided the historic fleet of Redbird trains with a new life under the sea.
