Slide to the Train

Slides typically are not thought of as a mode of transportation. However, at the newly renovated railway station Overvecht in the Dutch city of Utrecht, a slide has been installed next to a stairway to allow travelers the opportunity to quickly reach the railway tracks. Officially called a ‘transfer accelerator,’ the slide has made the city more playful and has generated positive externalities in the disadvantaged area, according to Pop-Up City.
