Cities are organic structures that tend to grow more complicated; maintaing the quality of life in cities requires designing systems. Rapid growth of population and received migration in metropoleis, makes public transportation an essential part of daily life. Public transportation vehicles, rail systems, buses, trains and passages, tunnels, stations and roads being built in correspondance with the systems, require architecture, design and graphic design as much as it requires physical construction and engineering. Graphic design helps information to be transmitted rapidly and accurately. Graphic language, being a universal language, encompasses most transportation users and allow the systems to be used by all. This article aims to examine the role of graphic design in public trasportation sistems by focusing on London and Eskisehir examples.
