Signs of the week
I've ridden public transportation in many of the great cities of the world, and as a visitor, have spent lots of time checking out the information displays. You don't want to miss your stop or end up on the wrong train, so systems that tell you what's ahead are much appreciated.
Although Paris and London, my two most recent great-city-transportation experiences, have good maps and markings, I have to give points to Tokyo for their in-car displays. These are all digital, appearing in sequence on a screen above each door.
It'll take some doing to louse up this train ride.
