London (daily to get to work)
Liverpool
Paris
Berlin
New York
Brussels
Copenhagen
Vienna
Rome
Budapest
Hong Kong
Beijing

My favourite would have to be London. Yes i know its expensive and unreliable (sometimes), but its the oldest underground system in the world, and also the most extensive (and still growing). Considering the fact that for years it was neglected financially by the government its amazing it runs at all - we in London should be proud of it!

Not sure if these count as they aren't underground:
Birmingham (England)
Manchester
Amsterdam

Possibly going to Athens later this year, so i'll look forward to using their new system.

- New York (lost twice. It definitely need a massive renovation 3/5) )
- Los Angeles (clean and nice 4/5)
- Chicago (nice experience 4/5)
- Boston (interesting station but needs renovation 2/5)
- Philadelphia (another interesting station 2.5/5)
- Paris (I'll give it 4.5/5. Nice trains and station. You don't go lost if you have the right map)
- London (another complicated subway but better than NYC. 3.5/5)
- Rome (another interesting station. Graffiti? 2/5)
- Tokyo (talking about being pushed inside like a sardine. That's were I met my first Asian girlfriend. She got pushed towards me. 5/5)
- Hong Kong (clean and easy because many people speak English 4/5)
- Washington DC (easiest of the easy. You don't get lost for the first time. It's my hometown so no rating)
- Sao Paulo (almost got pickpocketed inside the train. I told him to "Get the f***ed off!!!" and he almost run to the other side. The crowd is getting ready to beat him though. I never tried the subway again after that 1/5)

In order:

San Francisco - When I was very young and the family vacationed there. I rode the BART, but I barely remember it.

New York - I love the New York subway. By far the most convenient system I've ever traveled on; I have no idea why more cities don't have express and local options as extensive as New York's. (To be fair, I rarely need to leave Manhattan when I'm in New York, and I know that service in the Outer Boroughs isn't as convenient. But still.)

Los Angeles - My home town. For the places they go, the Red and Purple Lines are amazing; I love being able to get around Hollywood and Koreatown so easily. Unfortunately, the system isn't anywhere near where I live, so I rarely have the opportunity to ride it.

Boston - I'm not a huge fan. Service can be really slow and infrequent, and outside of downtown, the trains don't actually go very many places. What would be really helpful would be some sort of ring line; to get from, say, Cambridge to Brighton currently entails going all the way into the city and all the way back out on the Green Line, which takes forever. The CharlieCard system is a huge improvement, though.

Paris - Only when traveling through there once, so I didn't really see enough to judge.

Shanghai - So crowded! But convenient, fast, cheap, and easy to use. When I was there last (a few years ago), transfers between lines were kind of confusing, but I understand it's improved since then.

Chicago - I feel like I've been in at least one station underground on the El, so I'll include it (even though it's obviously mostly aboveground). Really needs a renovation; one of the dirtiest and smelliest metros I've ever been on.

Washington - This is a gorgeous metro. Plenty of seats (a real rarity, in my experience), great stations, and a quite extensive network.

Chongqing - Three of the stations (Daping, Linjiangmen, and Jiaochangkou) are underground, so this totally counts. I love the Chongqing monorail; even though it only has one line so far, it goes a bunch of useful places, has great views overlooking the Jialing River, and is very user-friendly. Also brand-new, so very modern-feeling.

Singapore - A great system, though also really crowded. It'll be nice when it's expanded more, though; some areas are hard to get to.

Toronto - Meh. Perfectly fine, though nothing special; it went to the places I needed to get to, mostly, was relatively quick, and was functional rather than aesthetic.

Philadelphia - Only once, so I'm not much of a judge, but it seemed fine if kind of old.

Beijing - Line 2 seems really in need of an overhaul; the cars are cramped and overcrowded, and the ticketing system is pretty bizarre. It's also worrying how many times I've been warned about pickpockets. But I'm looking forward to the Olympic expansion and refurbishment in store!

This summer I finally had a few opportunities to ride some subway networks.

Toronto - July 2007.

Basic system, but every efficient, high frequencies and doesn't ever seem to be too congested. It's a little small, the stations are a little blank (the majority look exactly like you are in the 1960s with the artwork and tiling on the walls) However a very pleasant experience.

London - August 2007.

By far the best (out of two, but whatever) It almost was 'the highlight' of my whole trip in London (only had the chance to really spend 3 days in the city, one was travelling by coach/tour bus, the other by the Tube) I loved it. Remarkably clean, efficient, full of charm, and so large. And I love it, being above ground driving around, it seems like there is a Tube station around every corner (being downtown and all) Favourite section was the Jubilee extension through Waterloo (never got as far as Canary Wharf) But it was outstanding and impressive the whole way through!

London
Paris
Strasbourg (underground tramway)
Seattle (our commuter rail goes under downtown)
Portland (one underground stop)
Vancouver
Tokyo
Kyoto
Osaka
Sapporo

All my travel money for the next few months is going to be back and forth between Seattle and Strasbourg, so it'll be a while before I add to this. My favorite is Tokyo, hands down, for ease of connectivity and organized riders!
