New to the list is
85. Foshan
which is in the aglo of Gunagzhou. So far there is only one line in Foshan, conected fully to the Guangzhou metro system. The line is called GF (which stands for Guangfo).

Here the transfer between two systems (no separated ticket needed):


For the passangers it doesnt look like two different metros (maybe it's the fact, that nowadays all metro stations in the whole China look the same).

I'm sorry to reduce the length of your list, but there's no metro whatsoever in my hometown (and of course neither light rail nor tram). Between Sitges and Barcelona there is just a normal commuter rail line (Renfe Rodalies), with 4 trains per hour on a regular basis.

If we had to consider that as a "metro", we would also have to classify as metros most commuter rail lines in European cities.

Indeed my first and only 22-hour visit to Poland until now. I was very impressed and will definitely return soon. There's still much to discover for me in Eastern Europe.

If anyone doesn't remember this is my list:

2. Barcelona (2011)
3. Valencia (2012)

Too bad trams aren't included, I would add Sóller, Zaragoza and Bordeaux.

I knew somebody would have already thought about that.

If I had to complete my list with metros I haven't ridden in cities I've visited, it should include at least those ones:

- Rio de Janeiro
- Amsterdam
- Los Angeles (I even went inside one station in Hollywood boulevard but I didn't ride on the metro)
- Miami
- Glasgow
- Stockholm

I don't worry about the European ones, but I really regret not having traveled on the American ones.

I must admit I went on purpose to ride some of the metros of my "official" list, just for one-station trips that were completely unnecessary.

So I want to thank publicly all my relatives and friends who have visited with me metros all around the world just to help me fulfill my task.

My 88. metro is Toulouse



I think the metro in Toulouse makes a great job, it is fast, frequent, and you dont experience long stays at the single station. The train is driverless, it stops openes the door, closes and goes straight away. Really cool. You have the feeling like it wastes not a single second. But the design is really boring. All stations look pretty much the same. Even the tine artworks in some of them don't make them easy to distinguish.

Lucky you. When I missed metro systems, it most often happened when I was traveling with others and didn't want to bother them with my "strange habit".

Yeah, but they are rather exception than a rule... i had the impression that all stations look exactly the same... even the newer line B looks exactly like a line-A-clone, although it's been built several years later...
