All tours meet at Union Station at the information kiosk, just inside the Alameda Street entrance.

The tours are approximately 90% walking; there are elevators and escalators in all of the stations.
Public restrooms are available at Union Station.
Tour-goers will navigate the Metro system and experience old-school architectural splendor alongside interactive, electronic artworks at Union Station, as well as a variety of artworks created over Metro Art’s 25-year history, from Jonathan Borofsky’s soaring life-size human figures to Faith Ringgold’s vivacious “people portraits.”
