The 11 Best Transit Systems in the World
The article I found offers a pretty legitimate list, but I thought, what the heck, I'll list the top transit systems for the places I have lived. Try it, it could be easy or harder then you think.
1. The Bay Area - San Francisco
The BART and the city bus system is sometimes clean, offers an easy way to get anywhere, and has many people of all different types of sanity riding along with you. It is cheap and once you are there for a day or two you got it down...
2. Washington DC
DC offers a pretty good system, and you can get all most anywhere in the area as well, a pretty good system.
3. Baltimore, MD
Along the same lines as DC, lots stops, you can get right to the inner harbor from John Hopkins University, and it is easy to navigate.
4. Vancouver, BC
The system is clean as long as you are not going to the lower east side, and it is ok for getting around. I would say you should ride your bike if you had the choice.
5. Seattle, WA
Right around the same level as the Vancouver system, a little cheaper (free if you are riding downtown), and you can easily get across the water to Fremont, and such.
6. Arlington, VA
This system is connected to the DC system, but it was very bus oriented when I was there, I couldn't say I felt particularly uneasy, but it had its moments.
7. Austin, TX
This city offers more then the last three, and that is saying a lot. They have buses so that is a start.
Tampa Bay, FL
I all most made it to 11. The final three are cities but the transit is all most non-exsistant. At least when I was living there.
When you're traveling around the world, it's good to know that there are public transit systems available to help you get where you want to go. Underground subway systems offer the convenience of getting where you want when you want without the hassle of having to flag down a taxi or rent a car. In just about all cases, it's the most cost effective option.
There are some beautiful, modern, and vast rapid transit systems throughout the world. The most popular and diverse international underground transit systems are listed below, but are merely a sample of the quite eye-catching transit systems that exist throughout the world.
