Event: Transit Trivia Night at the Transit MuseumBy
At what station do the hijackers in the 1974 version of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three board the ill-fated Lexington Ave. local? How much money did Charlie need to pay in order to exit from Boston’s M.T.A.? If these questions come easy to you — or even if they do not — do I have an event for you.
On Thursday, January 17 from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m., the Transit Museum is hosting its first-ever transit trivia night. Stuart Post and Chris Kelley will lead the event, and it’s being billed as a trivia contest focusing on transit in pop culture, history, music and more. In other words, distinct knowledge of rolling stock model numbers not required.
The event costs $15 — or $10 for museum or Transportation Alternatives members — and tickets, which come with one free Brooklyn Brewery beer, are available here. The trivia teams can consist of 2-6 people so if there’s enough interest, I’ll put together a Second Ave. Sagas team. Drop a note in the comments or use the site’s contact form.
