Okay... Phew. All updated.

Will think about the Chinese cities and see whether it is worth it to merge into one thread. Merging everything would make a right mess of all of the information, though.

Give me a couple of days to do that. It took me over an hour and a half last night to do all that, and tonight I am busy. Will do it by the end of Wednesday, though!

And merge an earlier thread with the same name into it that.

Also, these two threads, both named 'VALENCIA | Public Transport', need to be disambiguated. The first one refers to the Valencia in Spain, while the second one refers to the Valencia in Venezuela.

Rename the following threads to include other transports:
North America:Central & South America:Europe & North Asia:Central, & Southeast Asia:Africa:Middle East:Some corrections:
  • A missing " after the URL of India: Urban Transport Compilation, which messes up with Iran: Urban Transport Compilation.
  • A missing " after the URL of Cairo: Metro, which messes up with Cape Town: Public Transport.
  • Hsinchu is misspelled as Hisnchu in both the list and the title of the thread.
  • Oran is listed incorrectly as a city of Tunisia. It should be in Algeria.
  • Kaliningrad, Russia: Tramway; Kazan, Russia: Metro; Norrköping, Sweden: Tramways; Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain: Tramway threads no longer exist.
  • Threads changed to Public Transport haven't been updated on the list:
    • North America: Los Angeles, Montréal, Philadelphia, Seattle, Vancouver
    • Central & South America: São Paulo
    • Europe & North Asia: Athens, Budapest, Istanbul, Madrid, Prague, Riga, Warsaw

Will rename this weekend, however, I don't think I will merge everything into a compilation thread. Since new threads have been started, it is actually difficult to merge - results in incoherent thread as posts are badly spaced. Plus, for search engine indexing, it's better to have separate threads actually, that's why separate threads were made for Japanese cities (finally).

I have made changes to the post accordingly. BTW, are you still going to merge the threads of the same city in the previous post and add the exception cities to the urban transport compilation threads in the list?

I support the idea of having separate threads for major Japanese cities since the original Japan Urban Transport thread is huge. However, I found that there are duplicate posts in both the city threads and the regional thread. Same thing happens in Brazil Urban Transport thread and Brazilian cities threads. Hence, we need to list out all the exclusions in the list.

Most people are still not realized that there are independent threads, that's why most people are still publishing in common thread

That's indeed what the problem is. Should we group the cities in the same country instead of listing them lexicographically? For example:

The reason is that people don't like having to post things between different threads it seems... I mean, this thread finder was made and is maintained so that people do check it and do look to see where information can be posted.

I guess I could try grouping by country in some cases for countries with a large number of threads.

Plus Delhi is the world's second most populous city (25 mill inh.) in the world after Tokyo. So i don't see any reason why a separate thread for Delhi Metro shouldn't exist in a section called 'Subways and Urban Transport'. If anyone is interested then we can start a new thread for other modes of transport in Delhi.

I support that. US, China etc have lots of threads in this section and grouping by country sounds like a good idea. However i don't support the renaming and merging of several old threads.

Well, Delhi Metro may be one of the fastest growing metro systems but yet to be one of the largest. The largest systems like Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Shanghai all have Public Transport threads instead of Metro threads on their own. In terms of the ridership, Delhi Metro is still way behind other systems. Even including the lines under construction, it is behind cities like Guangzhou (360 km vs 519 km) and Guangzhou also has Public Transport thread instead. Regarding the city population (in fact it should be metropolitan population), Delhi has 21.8 M but not 25 M. If you say city population, it should be 17.8 M. It is definitely not the second most populous metropolitan but still in the top list. In terms of post counts, which is a better argument on having its own thread, Paris Metro thread has 4835 posts, suburban rail thread has 1666 posts; London Underground thread has 3428 posts, Overground thread has 1378 posts; Hong Kong MTR thread has 2904 posts, buses thread has 1287 posts. Delhi Metro thread may have the potential but we cannot predict the future and until then I do not see why a single thread is not suitable.

To me, a unique feature of the system is more important when it catches people's attentions and engaging the talks. For example, New York Subway is a 24/7 one, which is rare in the world. Its complicated route and schedule and steel station structure shape its own character too although they aren't very attractive to me. London Underground has the longest history and the small tunnel of the tube gives the distinct round shape of the trains. Paris Metro's density of stations makes it stand out of other systems. Moscow stations are famous for their palace like decorations. Tokyo subways integration with commuter rail represents a totally different model of metro system.

Please read my post again. I mentioned when Phase IV construction finishes in 2021-22, it will become one of the largest metro systems in the world. Anyways for your information, DM Operational now - 193km + phase III- 140 km (u/c) + phase IV (104 km announced so far, more lines and extensions will be announced shortly).

You are wrong sir. The 10 most populous cities in the world in 2014 acc to UN DESA are:

1. Tokyo - 38 million
2. Delhi - 25 million (projected population 36 million in 2030)
3. Shanghai- 23 million
4. Mexico city- 21 million
5. Mumbai - 21 million
6. Sao Paulo - 21 million
7. Osaka - 20.2 million
8. Beijing - 19.8 million
9. Newyork/Newark - 18.5 million
10. Cairo - 18.5 million

''Delhi is now the world’s second most populous city with 25 million inhabitants. Tokyo remains the world’s largest city with 38 million inhabitants. The 2014 revision of the World Urbanisation Prospects by U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA)’s Population Division has pointed to rapid urban growth in India, China and Nigeria.Further, the report says that while Tokyo’s population is projected to decline, Delhi’s would continue to grow rapidly and by 2030, the Capital would have 36 million inhabitants, only a million less than Tokyo’s 37 million then.''

Talking from a western perspective. An average Indian, chinese or an Indonesian have nothing to do with those systems.
