Totally agree.

I much prefer surface rail, over underground rail. Much more to see.

Probably the actual travelling is the least exciting part of the underground. However, undergrounds being the most expensive railways to construct are always fascinating from so many different aspects and no two systems are the same.

I don't go out of my way to travel on undergrounds and can't compete in terms of number with many of the contributors to this thread but I always find these systems interesting.

I think that in traveling underground the feeling of being a part of the city live is so great- you see SOOOO many different people, cultures etc. IMHO the whole infrastructure underground is often very impressing

My List:

1.Warsaw (where I live )
2.Amsterdam
3.Rotterdam
4.Prague
5.Vienna
6.Budapest
7.Paris
8.Berlin
9.Essen
10.Boston
11.New York+PATH train
12.Washington DC

Wauw, do they have a different underground system in Oakland and Berkeley? What's it called. OART and BERART? And you never rode the Milbrae or Dale City Underground?

But seriously, you were joking, I hope...

Hey, you can't blame me. I answered the question. The title is How many cities have you travelled 'underground'?". That's what I answered. If you mean the metro area, just San Francisco. Milbrae and Daly City are above ground, so that doesn't count.

You are right, but if interpreted this way, most of us would have to add huge numbers of cities to their lists.

Most recent addition to my list:

Stockholm

Definitely one of my favorite metros! ALL trains are modern and comfortable, stations are decorated with art and the network is rather extensive for the city's population. Moreover, its at-grade segments offer spectacular views of the forested suburbs and the old town.
