The Transit Station is a room in the Sanctuary Fortress. It appears in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, called such due to its frequent portals to the Hive Portal Chamber, which is part of a sequence to collect a Power Bomb Expansion. It also contains two harmful lasers.

The Dark Aether version of the room was the Hive Portal Chamber.

Connecting rooms[]


First Visit[]

2 Luminoth Turrets
"Mechanism: Luminoth Turret
Automated heavy defense system.
Heavy beam weapon system of Luminoth design. Evade its fire with quick movement."

Future Visits[]

2 Rezbits
"Mechanism: Rezbit
Rogue patrol drone.
Variable beam cannon and digital virus delivery system makes target very dangerous. Barrier shield and phasing power help protect it from damage."


Power Bomb Expansion
Requires Power Bombs. Samus must follow the maze in this room and its dark counterpart to reach the expansion.


Dark Portal (inactive)
"This rift portal is inactive.
The portal field can be energized with dark energy. Walk into an energized portal to transport to Dark Aether."
Dark Portal (active)
"This portal is active.
Walk into the portal to transport to Dark Aether. Extreme caution recommended once transit is complete."
Spider Ball Track
"System: Spider Ball Track
Magnetic rail system track.
In Morph Ball mode, press and hold R* when close to this type of surface. Use Control Stick to move the Ball along the track. Release R* to disengage from the surface.
CAUTION: A Morph Ball Bomb will briefly disengage the Ball from the track."
Blast Door
"Structural analysis complete.
Blast door has been weakened by heavy radiation in area. The secondary Denzium in its frame is degenerating at a slow but constant rate."


  • Alternatively, Samus can use a combined series of Slope Jumps and the Screw Attack to reach the Power Bomb Expansion.[1] This method bypasses the need to use the Dark Portals within this room.
    • Although very difficult, this Expansion can also be obtained successfully without the Spider Ball.
