Some people prefer walking up flights of stairs while others would rather ride an escalator. The escalator takes you up and down different stories without having you to work the slightest bit. However, this subway doesn’t want its passengers to enjoy an exercise-free day. That’s why you have to ascend four steps before accessing this escalator.
We think that the subway got the wrong escalator size, and instead of asking for a longer one, they decided to work with what they got. That’s actually quite resourceful of them, AKA stingy. And they even have handrails for the four-step staircase that leads to the escalator. Cute.
