Don't beat yourself up, Toronto's system is one of the best in North America (and that's coming from a New Yorker)

In my country, Rotterdam and Amsterdam both have all three, and next to that even regular tramlines. The extensive tramlines are basically also the reason why there aren't that many subway lines.

Yes this has been done (by me!). I do think Toronto's system is very comprehensive though. It's neat how HK's system has lights on the map and tell you where you are, and which side to exit. I was very impressed when I was last there.
