The New York Transit Museum, in collaboration with vendors who produce Official MTA Licensed products, are proud to offer a limited collection of "H" line merchandise for sale through the Museum’s online store. The proceeds generated by these sales benefit relief efforts led by The Graybeards, a local organization established in response to 9/11 and dedicated to the Rockaways community.
The "H" is the route designation given to a special, temporary subway shuttle set up in late November 2012 to run on a portion of the damaged A train route, providing much-needed subway service for the Rockaway Peninsula, which had been without A train subway service since Sandy struck in October. The "H" designation had not been used since 1994 when it was last used for the Rockaway Park Shuttle, which operates between Rockaway Park and Broad Channel. Normal A train service was restored in May 2013.
All proceeds will be donated to The Graybeards Rockaway Relief efforts.
