Departing Metros



Short videos of what best characterizes the subways in different cities: trains leaving stations, including the typical departure sounds or announcements. (Some videos even tell humble short stories of doors opening again for late passengers, drivers acting like showmen, or passengers leaping through closing doors.)

If you happen to have a video in good quality (preferably with the complete departure announcement audible) which you would like to share, please leave a message.
