Prague, Czech Republic, taken on December 25, 2014
I’m not sure if what I heard about the Prague metro system is true, but it is said that the reason that the metro was built so deep underground was so that it could serve as a nuclear bomb shelter. And certainly it was deeper than the metro in most other cities that I’ve seen!
I don’t use the Glasgow subway often – at least not yet. Not sure if I like it or not…it’s rather loud and smelly, but efficient and simple enough.
Somehow this image of the window on a TTC subway train caught both the platform outside the train and the reflection of the interior of the train. Rather unexpected, but neat nonetheless.
Second TTC pass day with the sister brought us initially to the town centre where we hopped onto the Scarborough RT. I haven’t been on the RT for many, many years. At McCowan station, I went to the very front of the train and looked through the window towards the rails and tracks on the way ahead.
One thing in Toronto that I can’t (or don’t want to) get used to again is our inefficient public transit system. Yet, lacking a car, I can’t get anywhere without taking the TTC…blah. The “new” subway trains certainly are much wider and brighter though. Now, can we just improve service?
