The TTC in HD

The TTC isn't always high on aesthetics. The subway cars are old and battered, some of the buses barely work and the streetcars can look dated. But the TTC can offer aesthetes beauty in other ways. Kieran Huggins has created these visually-stimulating videos of TTC service.

While the videos (embedded below) are interesting simply for their ability to show the futurist-like beauty of a modern transportation service, they also provide a snapshot of how the TTC functions. Notice the build-up and slowdown in service as the city hits the peak rush-hour periods. It almost gives the TTC a human-like quality--like the rush-hour peak pumps adrenaline into the system.

Anyways, if nothing else, we can enjoy the magnitude of our city's transportation infrastructure.
