I'm pretty sure Miami's MetroRail is an elevated train instead of a subway.

DC or NYC are the only transit systems we can be proud of and NYC is bordering on that.

Not really. Both Boston and Philly have VERY extensive transit systems.

Philly has some gaps that definitely make it inferior to New York. Plus, it has those tokens.

I think the list of cities that have a subway/light rail system is pretty big.

It's nice to see cities like Houston expanding their transit options. I am surprised Miami, given their tight land constraints, are not putting a big focus on expanding their transit system.


1. NYC
2. Chicago
3. D.C./Boston (Tough call for me given the commuter rail in Boston, which D.C. lacks)
4. D.C./Boston
5. San Francisco
6. Philadelphia
7. Atlanta
8. Los Angeles
9. Cleveland
10. Seattle
