Subways

Neo Tokyo Metro

Neo Tokyo Metro

This mirror-image video made from footage along one of Tokyo’s rail lines is more than a little reminiscent of Darwinfish105’s HyperDrive and the Tokyo Sky Drive series, but its slower and more relaxed pace lets us check out more detail of the surrounding environment.

Somebody to Love on the Subway

Somebody to Love on the Subway

The musicians of Apartment Sessions turn in an energetic rendition of Queen’s 1976 classic Somebody to Love, as performed in the cozy confines of a New York City subway car. While nobody will ever sing like Freddie Mercury, they make up for it with sheer enthusiasm.

Deeper Underground

Deeper Underground

If you’ve ever lived in a big city, you’ve probably spent a meaningful amount of time wandering underground tunnels on your way to or from subway trains. In Return’s engrossing short film takes us on a hypnotic ride through the public walkways of the London Underground.

The Subway Spa

The Subway Spa

For Improv Everywhere’s latest urban prank, they took advantage of the humid and oppressive Summer heat in a NYC subway station to turn it into a spa, complete with sauna and massage tables. We can imagine no place less relaxing.

One Bad Step

One Bad Step

New York’s 36 Street Subway Station is like any other big city underground stop – except for one thing – its staircase has one wonky step that’s tiny bit taller than the rest, making everyone trip on it.

Snack-Man

Snack-Man

(NSFW: Language) A scuffle breaks out between riders on the New York subway when a vigilante hero intervenes to break things up. Is it The Dark Knight? Nope, just some guy and his snack food.

The Sleeper Car

The Sleeper Car

Improv Everywhere took a break from causing a ruckus with their latest project. They placed beds in a New York subway car for tired commuters and even offered sleep masks and pajamas.

Subway Skating

NYC Transit Rules of Conduct state that it’s a violation to stand on a skateboard, jump the turnstile, move between end doors of a subway car or scratch or deface subway or bus property.

Sub City Paris

Sub City Paris

From New York to Paris, Sarah Klein and Tom Mason continue to capture the transition from the subway’s depths to the world above. We love the shot of the faces of emerging passengers.

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

Boardwalk Empire Subway Train

To promote the 2nd season of Boardwalk Empire, HBO is running an authentic 1920s train in the 2/3 line of the New York City subway this September. This train’s first run was way back in 1917.

Subway Dining Car

Subway Dining Car

(NSFW: Language) We’re not quite sure how they pulled it off, but a group of supper-clubbers recently took a ride on a NYC L train for an elegant six-course meal, delivered stop-by-stop.

Riding on the Metro… Alone

Riding on the Metro… Alone

(NSFW: Language) This dude found himself completely alone on one of DC’s Metro trains and went a little nuts in his solitude. What would you do if you had the whole subway car to yourself?

Sub City New York

Sub City New York

There’s nothing like emerging from the bowels of the subway to find yourself in a new, vibrant part of the city. Sarah Klein and Tom Mason do their best to capture this in their all-too-short film.

Stephen Mallon’s Next Stop Atlantic series is an eerie, gorgeous documentation of the dumping of old NYC Subway cars into the Atlantic Ocean; the other work in his portfolio is starkly poignant too.

People of Public Transit

People of Public Transit

The People of Public Transit website proves our theory that when in doubt, we can usually find the most random, amusing and bizarre bits of life collected all together on public transportation.

Incredible Subways of the World
