Making Transit Stations Fun

By Lindsey Miller in Miscellaneous on Jun 24, 2010 6:20PM

We've been taking the CTA a lot lately thanks to all these crazy storms and we have to admit we're a little jealous of the fun that commuters in Germany and Sweden get to have. Volkswagen installed a slide and a giant piano on the stairs at a couple of stations - catch the videos below. The CTA Tattler suggests that Apple sponsor a slide on the North/Clybourn stairs during their sponsored remodel of the station which is scheduled to be completed at the end of the year. Sign us up!

The piano video is after the jump.
