Subway Reefs...
Sea Turtles on the
 

 

In 2001 the MTA retired its fleet of Redbird subway cars. It gave the trains to states on the Atlantic coast to serve as artificial reefs for fish. The program has been successful in supporting the web of undersea life and attracts game fish, which draws sport fishermen and scuba divers to the reefs.  New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina and Georgia have “reefed” about 1,000 subway cars in all from the MTA.

Come hear Bob Martore, the Artificial Reef Manager from South Carolina’s Department of Natural Resources explain how subway cars help provide homes for marine life.
