Yeah. But the Copenhagen Metro has beautiful sleek looking trains (amongst the best) and futuristic stations to somewhat make up for it...

Right. No 2 subway stations are alike.

Btw..this is the new Orange Line BRT. It's just a bus but still..

i like that system,it is one of my favorits, the stations are really full of 'good ideas', as I say it. there are so many beautiful and well thought details. it's only a pity, that it's nopt so large as it should be for that kind of city.

They could call it a metro if it was a tram... but what's the relation between THE BUS and the name given "ORANGE LINE METRO"

LA's transit company is called Metro. There is the Metro Rapid Bus, Metro Local, and a few others. The Orange Line's route is displayed on metro.net. The Orange Line is a bus yes. But it has it's own personal route that only is made just for the Orange Line uses and even the Red Line Subway has posters of the Orange Line that says, 'It's the bus that acts like a train.' The Orange Line by no means is a train. But it's doing very well.

I remember thinking that at the Metro stations I went to (well, not the green line). I can't believe how deep the tunnels are at some of the stations. Why aren't there machines or anything (attendants) to go through? I think the honor system is going to cheat them out of money.

You ride at your own risk. Cops do random ticket checks. If you don't pay $1.35, you are subject to a $350 dollar fine.

Yeah, and I believe they make more money that way. I have been checked three times, and twice I have seen other people get caught.

350 dollars is a lot. The fine here in Hamburg is 40 Euros (ca. 47 Dollars), but still I rarely see people getting caught (and I get controlled quite often in the trains and sometimes in the busses too). AFAIK no transit system in Germany has machines to go through.

I've never seen the on the southern part of the blue line or on the green line... maybe they're affraid to do it there (I don't blame them). I've seen them on the Gold Line and the Red Line a number of times, and around 7th/Metro on the Blue Line
