With support from funds raised by the Museum Access Consortium for the FAR Fund, the New York Transit Museum is piloting an introductory program about riding the subway for children on the autism spectrum in grades 6 through 8. The program is a collaboration between the Transit Museum, the Museum Access Consortium, and District 75's Office of Travel Training at the New York City Department of Education.
