Ok, now that I rode metros the past few months, I can take part in this thread.

Seattle (people list this...the monorail or the bus tunnel?? I rode both).

San Francisco: Was actually my first real subway in August. Stations were outdated, cars were old but nice. Loved the sounds they made. Impressed with the 10car trains...definitely more of a commuter rail.

Lyon: I'm a daily lyon metro rider now. I can say that I prefer smaller, more frequent trains, than longer, less frequent ones (example, metro D has cute 2-car trains every 30-40seconds during rush hour). Stations are modern, trains are nice and clean. Love it! The older lines have cars with couch-like seats. Some stations have bakeries inside...mmm

Paris: The walkways were a maze, and I didn't like the paygates. Reminded me of jail or something. I like the sounds of the trains arriving/departing. System is impressive. Rode RER once. Couldn't believe a subway car could have 2 floors!

I'm looking forward to riding London's and Budapest's.

That's because the RER is more of a suburban rail network than a genuine metro network...

But as I've come to understand, bi-level trains are quite an oddity in the States. Germany already had them in the 1930's...
