This fun hyperlapse video was shot on Tokyo’s fully-automated Yurikamome transit system by a photographer/filmmaker who goes by darwinfish105. The visuals in the video were achieved using an array of mirror and vertical flip effects in Adobe Premiere. You might remember similar videos shot by Daihei Shibata and Craig Shamala from back in 2010, however this new video seems to have been shot predominantly from the front/back of the train giving the video a somewhat different feel. If you liked this you might also enjoy these transit photos by Céline Ramoni, also taken on board the Yurikamome. (via faith is torment)

Australian designer Cameron Booth has designed a map of the United States Highway system as if it were a public transportation subway map. What a brilliant piece of graphic design. You can pick it up for just $39. (via laughing squid)

I first covered the Mobile Garden project here on Colossal back in October of last year. UIC Art and Design graduate Joe Baldwin continues to pursue funding for his open-air public transit garden, but meanwhile was given the opportunity to participate in this year’s Art on Track festival last weekend by turning the interior of an el car into a fantastic sod-covered, ivy-laden garden. This car circled Chicago’s elevated downtown loop for five hours with several additional cars decorated with numerous other art installations. Photos via noisvelvet. (via inhabitat)

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)

Today I stumbled onto the Flickr stream of photographer Céline Ramoni based in Tokyo who for the last few years has been capturing these fantastic long exposure photos of the Yurikamome transit line that travels between the Japanese cities of Shimbashi and Toyosu. The rest of her photography is well worth your time including gems like this, and this, and oooh this.

Today I was reading over on Flavorwire about Mark Noad’s proposed redesign of the London Underground Tube. I found a link on his blog to this epic ongoing thread about the London Underground that began back in 2002 on Edward Tufte’s website where he posted this fun global tube map created by Alan Foale in 2002 for The Times. It’s like the Pangea approach to public transportation. I love that two of my favorite cities, Chicago and Prague, happen to be on the same line only 9 stops apart. Oooh I hope there’s a bar car.

A couple of fun images from around Chicago this week. A fake el sign at Wellington, a repeating Chicago flag, and Shepard Fairey (previously) stopped by and left behind a pretty awesome mural down at Navy Pier. Images link to their source.
