All aboard the trivia train.

Get ready to show off your knowledge of New York City’s transit system, when “Transit Trivia” returns to the New York Transit Museum in Brooklyn Heights.

The trivia questions will focus mostly on the everyday knowledge we all gain from spending a large percentage of our lives on the system.

“We can actually go to a high level of specificity about the New York City transit system, because, frankly, all of us are experts in it,” said Stuart Post, who co-hosts the trivia night with his husband Chris Kelley.

Post and Kelley are well known for their Brooklyn-specific trivia nights. In addition to the transit trivia night they hosted a year ago, they have also organized trivia nights focusing on cemeteries and Brooklyn history.

When the pair first did this last year, they popped questions such as what is the highest station in the system (Smith and Ninth), asked players to identify pictures of subway stations, and tasked them with deciphering a hangman-style game where colored circles matching various subway lines offered clues to the missing letters. There were also rounds referencing transit-themed music, such as Judy Garland’s “The Trolley Song,” and movies such as “The French Connection” and “The Taking of Pelham 123.”

Post and Kelley will allow teams of up to six to play together. Winning teams will get transportation-related prizes donated by local companies.

“Transit Trivia” at the New York Transit Museum [Boerum Pl. at Schermerhorn Street in Downtown, (718) 694–1600, web.mta.info/mta/museum]. Jan. 29 at 6:30 pm. $10–$15.
