Baltimore. Has a subway, a light rail, the oldest water taxi system in America (I think), and bus lanes used by a free bus system as well as one provided by Maryland Transit Authority. On top of that we have Bird and Lime.

I've spent very little time on the West Coast, but I don't know of any cities of a similar size with comparable options. I guess Boston and DC also fall into the 600,000-700,000 people range, but their suburbs are obviously way more populated.

Exactly, This post would make no sense at all if it weren't metros lmao I wonder do people really not understand that? It's hilarious though. Yes lets add DC, Boston, SF, Seattle, and almost every other city in the country.

I mean... outside of the cities you just named, and the obvious ones that are bigger, not many American cities regardless of population have sufficient transit. So I think the post makes some sense.

There being only 10, maybe 11 now, U.S. cities with populations over one million, if this is the case, you might as well end this thread here right now.

It's just an extension of the fact that many truly don't understand that city propers mean next to nothing when comparing cities to other cities. By that logic San Antonio, San Jose, and San Diego are much larger than the cities I mentioned previously, but it seems to me that in normal american understanding the cities that are necessarily deemed the most important, and influential tend to run along the lines of MSA at the least. I mean San Antonio really? lol

Too bad the Tucson metroplex just passed 1,000,000 a few years ago! (they're disqualified)

I should know, I lived there for 7 years.

While they have a nice 3.9 mile modern street car, the people who have to or want to use the bus there, complain like there's no tomorrow.
