Transit Walk–Deep Dive: Redbird Ramble

Saturday, April 11 | 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
$30/$25 for museum members

2020 marks the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the R26 subway cars, the first of the cars that came to be referred to as “Redbirds”. If you rode the subway between 1960 and 2003, chances are it was on a Redbird—they were on every numbered line and several lettered lines. Join transit historian and CUNY professor Andrew Sparberg on a walking tour where you will trace routes in Manhattan and the Bronx that the Redbirds served daily during their long history of transporting passengers. Traveling from 96th Street and Broadway in Manhattan up to Dyre Avenue in the Bronx on the 5 line, you will make stops at significant stations and learn interesting facts about the various Contracts that constructed the routes on which the mighty Redbird roared for over 40 years.

While anyone is welcome to join, this tour provides a deep dive for those who have some background information and knowledge about New York City Transit.
