As New York City marks the centennial of its subway, this exhibit tells the story of how riders saved city transit over the last 25 years. Where would our city’s subways and buses be without the riders? Not just as customers paying the fares and filling the seats, but as advocates for better transit. The riders moved mountains and — even harder — governors, mayors, legislators, and transit officials to help create the change that continues today.

The exhibit ran at the Municipal Art Society from September 8th to November 1st, 2004, with the support from six foundations, including the Charles H. Revson Foundation, the New York Foundation, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, the Scherman Foundation, and the Surdna Foundation.
