Hi! I am a big believer in big cities and fascinated by the urban transportation infrastructure that supports such levels of density and dynamism.

I am from NYC and I have previously worked for NYC Transit. I studied urban planning at school, and I am a licensed NYC tour guide, as well as an AICP certified urban planner. I am also a member of the Guides Association of NYC (GANYC).

I currently work on NYC infrastructure projects, advocate for public transit, and serve on the Board of Young Professionals in Transportation (YPT).

If you don’t go on this tour, you probably don’t like trains or mysterious tunnels, or transportation history, or meeting interesting people who may turn out to be your only friends one day you never know. So go on this tour and you won’t regret it, because if you do regret it, you’re the kind of person who regrets excellent new experiences like unique subterranean tours with an experienced qualified and intelligent human guide.

It was an excellent experience. The host Rayn's amazing story telling ability combined with his passion for public transport and urban planning, makes a memorable experience. He also drops in nuggets of wisdom about history and secrets of subway system, known only to a true NewYorker, that Rayn is. I highly recommend him!

Rayn was a fantastic tour guide! He was very personable and down-to-earth, and did a great job answering our questions. His photo book was a great compliment to the tour, and I never felt bored or disengaged. I look forward to attending future tours!
