Digital Discussion: Transit and Sports
Thursday, April 8 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree Online Discussion
For over 150 years mass transit and sports have been the perfect double play, with subways, buses and regional rail transporting fans from their homes to home games across the boroughs. With over twenty professional sports teams in the New York metropolitan region, mass transit makes sports stadiums accessible and transportation to games seamless.

Whether your allegiance is to the Jets or the Giants, or the Yankees or Mets, discover fascinating stories that show the ways in which public transit and sports are intertwined in New York City.
