Mexico City Subway has started lending out books to riders. Cool beans.

The program is supposed to help cut crime, although there are critics. "Now we'll have an equal number of delinquents, but well-educated," said one.

Apparently Tokyo has borrowing libraries at Subway stations, as well, although they implemented the program to "foster a sense of community".

I wish we had library stations in our Subways. I wish we had a Subway at all. I miss fast, reliable mass transit.
