About Metrobits.org

Metrobits is about the very urban transportation system (usually called metro, subway, underground railway, or rapid transit). The website includes some design, fun, and technical aspects of the subject, and quality photos. Coverage is supposed be global, often from the passengers' perspective. Besides providing some interesting stuff there is the mission that subway systems should be more than just a means of mass transportation and that the importance of aesthetic qualities of stations and rolling stock should not be underestimated by the operators.

Since the website sprang to life in late 2004, many visitors from around the globe have contributed suggestions and information. Thanks to that feedback, errors could be removed and accuracy increased. The current information density and the almost insane detailedness of some sections are the result of that help!

Metrobits is independent, non-profit, and not related with any rail operators, companies, or organisations. The material on this website is copyrighted. Copying of any part of it is not permitted without written agreement.
