Cleveland's Rapid Transit Still Looks a lot Like it did in the 1960s


Thanks to Brad the Transit Guy (@bradforte1), for sharing the above video on Twitter, which portrays tranquil scenes of the 1960s Cleveland Rapid Transit at stops across the city: Airport! University Circle! Puritas!

The grainy, subterranean footage and languorous orchestral accompaniment gives it a sort of Clockwork Orange vibe.

Though the rapid fleet itself and the signage have been upgraded — to say nothing of passengers' fashion choices — several of the stations are more or less unchanged in the 21st century.  

Shot-for-shot remake, anyone?
