Memorabilia & Collectibles Header

In addition to Transit’s regular monthly sales offerings, we are very pleased to present a sales program designed especially for buyers interested in acquiring a little bit of NYC Transit’s History.

Along with its outgoing fleet of buses and subway cars, Transit has Station Signs and Fixtures, Vintage Tokens, and other “collectibles” such as Handholds, Doors, Seating and Destination Signs from retired subway cars including the Transit’s historic “Redbirds”, “Brightliners” (R32), R38, R40 and R42 for sale when available.

Each month we feature items of interest to buyers, collectors or anyone who shares an interest in NYC Transit’s History. If you would like to be placed on our mailing list, please email us your name, address and type of material you are interested in to

asset.recovery@nyct.com.

All items are sold with a Certificate of Authenticity!

To better serve our customers, you must submit your order by 5PM on the last Wednesday of the month.

All orders will be shipped on the last Friday of every month unless otherwise scheduled.
