Good idea with the points... but Dublin has just trams, no metro yet. Unless u count the suburban rail as a metro. Does it have at least good frequency?

--Boston
--SF
--Seattle
--London
--Paris
--Madrid

I'm realizing how often I visit a city and never use the train...walking everywhere.

Let me update my list - it have been 5 years...

My previous comments are still relevant (with a few exceptrins):

Berlin - great system, both U-Bahn and S-Bahn. U-Bahn needs some upgrades and extension, too little money.

Hamburg - (U+S-Bahn) very efficient and nice, but not very crowded, and therefor a little boring in my opinion. Could be a bit bigger, some parts of the city have little coverage.

London - very great system. Very crowded (at any part of the day+evening), very big system, covers almost every part of the city. But many stations could be a little more interesting. The newest stations, on the Jubilee Line Extension, are really great! Like the historic parts too. Simply great.

Stockholm - one of the best systems in the world compared to the city size. Beautiful stations, nice trains (the new ones), very crowded, covers much of city and suburbs. My favorite!

Amsterdam - Actually I like the stations and trains very much, but it is much much too small. Covers nothing. Very little underground section. hated by the city. No one uses it. Will hopefully be better with the North-South-line, but need much more extensions than that to be an important part of the city!

Rotterdam - nice, but needs more crowd.

Prague - great system, very efficient, alright stations. Could use some more extensions. Some stations starts to look old.

Paris - awful system. Dirty, inefficient. Small trains. But I like the big labyrintic stations.

Valencia - nice and modern, but was not very big when I was there (many years ago now)
New:

München/Munich - (U+S-Bahn): Supernice!! Great network, great stations, extremely good coverage of almost all parts of the city. Great layout. Very modern and very efficient. My new favorite!

Zürich - (S-Bahn): Mostly surburban system with down town-tunnel. Mostly commuter-rail-like. Unlike other S-bahn-systems, it isn't very urban and doesn't contribute to the urban transport within the city, only few stations in central areas. Very slow.

Milan - (Metro, S-train): Metro was great. A bit dirty, but quite nice anyways. Even though many stations looked similar to each other, they were alright, and it had okay coverage (and is still expanded). Good urban metro.

Oslo - (T-bane): Alright system, even though it is a caracteristic metro, it mostly serve surburban areas and down town. Needs more coverage of the rest of the cities. Stations outside of the city is not very well placed, but are somewhat alright. The central section through the downtown area from Grřnland to Majorstuen is great, but it is unbeliavable that they havn't build a station yet in the dense area between Nationalteatret and Majorstuen (Homansbyen station have been plannes for ages, but havn't been build yet).

Malmö - (Citytunnel, commuterrail): Supergreat stations. Very impressive, big and modern. Used for regional trains to Copenhagen and southern sweden and local commutertrains. Not many stations, but those there are, are very great. Great for serving the most central places.

That bring my current list to:

Copenhagen (Metro+S-tog)
London (Underground etc.)
Berlin (U+S-Bahn)
Stockholm (Tunnelbana)
Hamburg (U+S-Bahn)
Amsterdam (Metro)
Rotterdam (Metro)
Prague (Metro)
Paris (Metro)
München (U+S-Bahn)
Zürich (S-Bahn)
Valencia (Metro)
Oslo (T-bane)
Malmö (commuterrail)

Pyonyangyang Metro is amazing! Stations are immaculate with stunning over the top chandeliers. Trains are old German stock (complete with German grafitti).
