lol, sorry! I just don't like how white it is!

Maybe painting the walls a different colour would stop them from looking so boring....

I can't tell you the exact speed but trains run with the same speed in the central zone and new trains (they are not yet working) will increase the speed in the external zones of the red line.

In Metro do Porto's site is available the average comercial speed on each line...But it is not the kind of data you want, I suppose...

Keep the station as it is. Ads only make things ugly.

There's a big difference between boring architecture and high-quality minimalist architecture, and Metro de Porto seems to lean towards the latter. Very unique for a metro system.

I agree Yes it is very minimalistic, but it gives a very cool ambient to the stations.



(And it has enough advertising on the platforms...)

I used that station (Salgueiros), and It's my second favourite. The pic could show more of it, especially what I call the "christal". It is very good architecture. Didn't knew there was a thread on Metro do Porto.
