That's odd...why would you have your back to the door? In every metro I've been in, we stand facing it so when it opens you can just get right out!!

The deep level trains in London are very tubular and if you are standing at the door you have to tilt your head inwards out of the way of the doors. And its easier to tuck your head in forwards (ie facing inside the train) than tilting backwards (if you were facing the door)

Dude, that's really unsafe. The doors could pop open at any time! People get yelled at about that on BART all the time.

Correct. Inokashira line is a bit of an inbetween line, but technically its commuter since it falls under Keiou's banner. However, the station in the video is a terminus, and it is terminal style, not a through-station. Shibuya is also one of the busiest stations in the world. In Tokyo it is third, behind only Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, the top two busiest in the world (all 3 serviced by JR on 3 lines on 4 tracks - Yamanote Line, Shounan Shinjuku Line, and Saikyou Line, the latter 2 service the 3 stations consecutively). Its design for transferring is also one of the worst I've seen given its traffic, but they are fixing some of those problems with the new subway opening there in less than 2 years from now - it will not solve any of Inokashira's problems though. It would seem like an obvious solution to have the Keiou Inokashira line run through-service on the Ginza line considering they are aligned appropriately within the station to make it semi-painless, but unfortunately they don't use the same track technology which makes it impossible.

This is gaining increasing popularity. It is not applicable for all lines, but most of the REALLY crowded ones are doing this now. It's been a growing trend for about 2 years now. Some companies have it only applicable on certain trains (for example, the Odakyuu line only has women-only cars for express trains (excpetion: Tama Express and Section Semi-Express), not the local). The women only carriage (aka the "powder car") is almost always at the rear of the train, but it depends on the operator (Toei Subway Shinjuku Line uses the front car). The cars are only exclusive during the morning rush.

Well I don't think they could pop open at any time cause that would be pretty bad if the doors open in the middle of the tunnel! thats why I'd lean forward when the doors open, although I usually go to the side in the middle, as most stations on the line I take are on the side.

Moscow metro Sretensky Bulvar station U/C

Quote:
Stretensky Bulvar (Russian: Сретенский Бульвар) is a future station on the Lyublinsko-Dmitrovskaya Line of the Moscow Metro. The construction, which began in the late 1980s, has frequently stalled as a result of continuous breaks in finances. Only in 2004 did proper funding resumed that has allowed it to finally finish the station. It is due to open in October 2007.

The station opening is long awaited as it will simultaneously allow transfers to two other lines: Chistye Prudy of the Sokolnicheskaya Line and Tugenevskaya of the Kaluzhsko-Rizhskaya Line. The projected passenger dynamics for the station are 10.8 thousand per hour on entry and 20.1 on exit. This will allow for a dramatic decrease on the Koltsevaya Line particularly the Komsomolskaya - Kurskaya path.

The stations are built just like during the old times, which means they should make the people think they live in a rich country. I'm not saying they're not beautiful because they are, but it doesn't look right...

1. It's just very good taste.
2. Moscow is indeed enough rich city and with high level of life.
3. It's not an Russian economy related thread. There is a such in DLM. Please read it, you will find answers for your question right there.

Oh god i'm in love with Moscow stations....Gimme a palace anyday! I'm so happy they're keeping with tradition (ornate detailing, long escalators) on the newer ones. Cheap, functional stations isn't Moscow at all. I visited their newest station (victory park? peabody? I forgot the name exactly) which was decked in colorful gleaming marble and that station was absolutely fantastic. New Moscow likes to show off. Work it!

Your logic is interesting... It does not seem right to you to build nice-looking stations... You suggest that Russians should build station of cheap shitty design. Do I understand you correctly?

IMO, when subway stations are built to last - at least something in the country is done right.
