Tube Transport System

The Tube Transport System (abbreviated TTS) is a form of mass transit in New New York City, replacing Old New York City's underground subway. The system consists of several transparent tubes, forking and merging without more apparent mechanism. Despite their apparent inability to perform, they are capable of transporting passengers to where the passenger wishes to go.
A passenger announces where he or she wishes to go, and the tube will activate and route them to their desired destination. Passengers enter head first, but manage to exit on their feet. However, it is common for tourists not to figure them out, so they occasionally land on something else than their feet.
The TTS is apparently free of charge, though passengers may be tracked using biometrics and charged directly to their bank accounts.
The TTS seems to be based on old pneumatic tubes, originally used to transport documents throughout offices (in fact, this can still be seen at the Central Bureaucracy).
