Based on: speed, frequency, cleanliness.

I vote for L.

Can't make any sense of these choices.Why have you lumped some trains together that don't logically go together and why have you eliminated some lines completely ? Are you familiar at all with the subway system ?

That's my question as well (the A logically should be paired with the C, not the E, but it's a small point).

Having written that, my favorite line(s) is either the 4/5 or 2/3. I write this only because of their frequency (the L is also pretty solid in that regard, but is not a train that I take often at all). I really want to like the A/C as I live closer to those lines (specifically, the C) than any other line (although the 2/3 is only a block difference in walking distance) and ride them frequently, but those trains have terrible later night service and even early morning service (during morning rush hours, the C comes every 9-11 minutes or so).

I live off and like the L. It makes it easier to transfer. You can pretty much transfer to any line aside from the J or 7. That being said its SOOOO crowded in the morning.

F express. I like that it covers a lot of ground, from Jamaica to Coney and a large swath of Manhattan. The F is also reasonably fast.

The A train is great when it is running! Some weekends and holidays you have to rely on the dreaded shuttle service (the buses).

Otherwise, it is so nice to board at Chambers or W4 and go all the way up to Dykeman St. in 30 minutes.

F on this list only because they use some of the newer trains and tends to get me where I want to go, but my all time favorite is the D because it's ALWAYS express (outside of that Dekalb Ave stop in Brooklyn at night).

The A/E/not so much C is nice because the rides are usually pleasant; where I ride it's the rarest to be crowded. The E especially because of the newer cars.
