Transportation Movie List

Howl's Moving Castle

Streets are about so much more than transportation. They can and should be places where people move, play and experience culture and community.

We’ve compiled a list of comedies, romance, dramas, and documentaries that are either centered around, or loosely connected to, transportation modes and systems. From the Oscar-winning bicycle underdog story of Breaking Away, to the very chatty train romance of Before Sunrise, to the eerily humorous documentary-style rendition of America’s suburbs, this movie list has everything!

To participate you can do one more more of the following:

  • Suggest additional movies to add to our transportation move list.
  • Watch of these movies and:
    • Write a short Twitter review.
    • Share your favorite line or moment from the movie.
    • Reenact your favorite scene.
