When it comes to commuting through local transit systems, people often walk through these hubs without even looking up, but these spectacular transit stations are offering commuters a much more modern and artistic place to travel through.

With subways and train stations being utilized by thousands of people on a daily basis, renovating these structures into contemporary designs and abstract shapes is a great way to get people to stop and notice. A creative way to turn structures that are commonly used into magnificent pieces of artwork, these spectacular transit systems will definitely make commuting to work or school something to look forward to.

From eco-friendly transit centres to those that feature subway slides, these mind-blowing transit stations will definitely turn an average commute into an artistically eye-opening experience.
