Minneapolis LRT is actually an awesome fast line in the outskirts, pretty fast, seems like a regular metro line. It slows down only in downtown, where it's not grade separated (unfortunately). It stops there every 10 feet and moves like a hurt turtle. It's a shame, they didnt put the central section underground.

Same with Portland. Slows down only in the city centers. They really should have made at least the Downtown Portland section underground. I feel like a lot more people would be keen to use it had that been the case. But because it's so slow, I'd rather drive to the airport in 45 min than endure a 1.5 hr MAX ride (not including train wait times).

Not sure how I forgot to add Osaka to my list as it burned a hole in my wallet. Also moved Tokyo to this year.

weird that the ug station/sections are not downtown or in another dense area, not to mention the downtown sections are not even grade separated. ...

Dallas, Denver, Phoenix, Calgary, and Houston are similar iirc.

104. Catania
Catania has some brand new stations, but it seems still to be very underused line.
Unfortunately even new trains are now covered with the ugly 'so-called' graffiti...
Hard to get any information about transportation in Catania, no maps at all.
