The underground levels are used by robots to manufacture, maintain and provide services.

When excessive demand is placed on parts of the above ground transport network, the robots reallocate their working spaces (and pack some things away if need be) to make additional routes available in parts of the city that are in demand. This can happen on a daily basis, and the robots make preparations the night before.
