Metro Logos of the World

Bad_spanking Most metros have logos or symbols to mark their station entrances, rolling stock, and printed matter such as maps or tickets. Since most metros around the world are indeed called 'metros' (only few are called subway, underground, U-Bahn, T-bana or something else), many metro logos are more or less fancy variations of the letter M.

There are different kinds of metro logos. In some cities a logo stands for the metro system itself, while in other cities only logos are found which represent the companies that are operating one or more metro lines. So there may be more than one logo in use in one city while in another a logo can consistently stand for the system or even for several metro systems within a country. Metro Logos of the World
