Exterior open entrance to a metro station
(Tribunal station in Madrid)
Interior of an underground metro station
(Place-Saint-Henri station in Montreal)
Often there are several entrances for one station, saving one from having to cross the street. In such a case, tunnels or overhead stations can often also be used just to cross the street.
In some cases metro stations can be connected to important buildings by a direct enclosed hallway (see underground city).
