• Discover today’s challenges, and learn about tomorrow’s possibilities for the region's built environment.

• Explore how the subway operates and learn about some of the technology keeping it moving 24/7.

• Learn about the history of the three subway companies that built today’s network, as well as the PATH subway.

• Experience the design of new, old, and abandoned stations, and uncover secrets hidden in plain sight!

Great for groups, teams, and team-building!

Note:

• Since our tour starts outside, a MetroCard swipe or OMNY tap will be required to enter the system.

• Please consider bringing comfortable shoes and water. Experience involves traversing an underground environment, and walking up and down many steps (not ADA accessible).

• This tour visits areas open to the public and does not access any restricted areas.

• Exact route and tour length may vary slightly based on the MTA’s weekend schedule, but the starting and ending locations will always remain the same. However, please feel free to leave at any time/location if you've got a busy day planned!

Hi! I am a big believer in big cities and fascinated by the urban transportation infrastructure that supports such levels of density and dynamism.

I am from NYC and I have previously worked for NYC Transit.

I studied urban planning at school, and I am a licensed NYC tour guide, as well as an AICP certified urban planner.

I currently work on NYC infrastructure projects, advocate for public transit, and serve on the Board of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT).

If you don’t go on this tour, you probably don’t like trains or mysterious tunnels, or transportation history, or meeting interesting people who may turn out to be your only friends one day you never know. So go on this tour and you won’t regret it, because if you do regret it, you’re the kind of person who regrets excellent new experiences like unique subterranean tours with an experienced qualified and intelligent human guide.

It was an excellent experience. The host Rayn's amazing story telling ability combined with his passion for public transport and urban planning, makes a memorable experience. He also drops in nuggets of wisdom about history and secrets of subway system, known only to a true NewYorker, that Rayn is. I highly recommend him!

Rayn was a fantastic tour guide! He was very personable and down-to-earth, and did a great job answering our questions. His photo book was a great compliment to the tour, and I never felt bored or disengaged. I look forward to attending future tours!
