Most of Toronto's older stations look like concrete bunkers or just a hole in the ground.

Hong Kong MTR

A smaller entrance:
TST


Disneyland


2IFC


I think this one is an elevator

why there are 2 steps at the metro entrance in HK? like in this case

is this because of the possibility of water on the streets??
