I have used all of the these, mostly while visiting. No complaints, appreciate the convenience. My city has a good transit system and it's always on time... however they have cut back quite a bit. The closest to my home is only for a few hours during the week and no weekends. If I need to use it on the weekends or on an off hour during the week, I drive to the station, park, then ride. Thanks, enjoyed the infographic.

My sister and BIL have been all over the place-they lived in Boston for a few years and got to know the "T" better than the roads due to public transit there being vastly more efficient. I don't know if she had a working knowledge of BART from their years in San Francisco, but I'm pretty sure that since they live in London now, they could tell us stories about the Underground!

Having grown up as a Prince George's County street rat, I grew up riding the Metro into DC-even now, I have no idea which roads lead where in DC because of riding the rails! One of my sister's and my favorite things to do was try to ride in the front car where we could see ahead of us and watch the engineer at work (unfortunately, you can't do that now-I think they redid the cars after 9/11 or something). Lots of other fond memories of riding the Metro with family and friends-too many to mention here! Another "perk" of riding the Red Line was being able to count the number of times we saw this graffiti signature of one of DC's tagger legends, Cool "Disco" Dan, who literally left his mark all over DC in the darndest places. The majority of his tags have disappeared in the past twenty years due to gentrification and general urban renewal, but there are still a few here and there.

The only thing that ever drove me bonkers was the fact that when I was coming home from college, I had to get off the train at two of the DC stations in order to ride the Metrobus to my neighborhood due to that being the way the routes ran. What was even weirder was that I had to catch the train at one end of the Red Line and ride it THROUGH DC to get to the "bus" stops I needed or vice versa. I don't know why they couldn't have run the buses to my area through the first/last stop on the Green Line, which was literally five miles from home.

Have used them all, except Chicago's, without problems or complaints, and I like Seattle's too, but London's is da bomb!
