Art of The Subway Tour

Buffalo’s Metro Rail system is chock full of art. Each of the rail stations is adorned with original works of art that were acquired upwards of 35 years ago as part of a Buffalo Art in Transit project.

The 22 artists featured throughout the rail system hail from all over the country. There’s so much art along the route that it’s hard to take it all in. That’s why Explore Buffalo offers an Art of The Subway Tour that takes modern art enthusiasts on a station-by-station tour of the expansive Metro Rail “gallery”.

The next Art of The Subway Tour takes place on Sunday, March 25, from 10am to 1pm. The tour starts at the University Station, 3434 Main Street. Free parking is available adjacent to the University Station in the Park-and-Ride parking lot.


General Admission: $15

Student Admission: $5

Explorer Pass Holders: FREE
