Toronto – clean, efficient, pleasant, big cars
Montreal – very 60s modern station architecture; French export cars quite narrow
Vancouver – mostly above ground; love the front row windshield
Mexico City – some time ago, but cars too small and unruly crowds; jolted by segregated women and children cars; Zocalo is a architectural and archaeological marvel
New York – rolling stock and some stations improved over the years, but system generally decrepit
Chicago – short underground section; really designed for commuter traffic to downtown only – inconvenient point-to-point within city; annoying announcements; noisiest in the world
San Francisco – very advanced for its time
Washington – blandly futuristic
Boston – some time ago it had vigilantes on system
Atlanta – convenient airport coverage to downtown, kind of dirty and unkempt for such a newish system
Philadelphia – old and unpleasant
Athens – some time ago, old and unpleasant
Hong Kong – very crowded all the time; deep underground levels at some stations)
Singapore – very efficient layout (easy entry / exit from car to street); heavily used
Tokyo – simply amazing for the sheer size, punctuality, coverage and ubiquity
Kyoto – small trains – the east-west line has a very awkward termination (one station short of the transfer station for many short-turned trains)
Osaka – similar to Tokyo
Manila – some time ago; almost all above ground, love the cheerful music
Buenos Aires – some time ago; most decrepit in the world; can see its faded former glory
Sao Paulo – some time ago; big city Metro, crowds behaved much better than Mexico City
Rome – some time ago; old, dark, graffiti, decrepit
Paris – old, dark, smelly, though stations are quite big and airy
Cairo – some time ago; very overcrowded, more like S-bahn

Buenos Aires (I uses it every day)
Rio de Janeiro
San Pablo
New York
Madrid
Barcelona
Paris
Roma
Milan
Viena
München

The Best: New York
The newest: Madrid (the line to the international airport)
The most crowded: Buenos Aires, Roma, Milan

The "Linea A" train in Buenos Aires was built in 1913. Today is like a museum because you can get the original trains made in wood. They are very efficient. I love Linea A>


But we have new lines too.

Not much

Amsterdam, of course
London
Paris
Berlin

I've been to plenty of cities which have a metro system, but it is nicer to discover the city on foot.
