Hard to beat is Pyongyang, with it's subway at approx. 120 m (!) below ground.
You guess why: in this way it can double as a shelter against a nuclear attack. They where thinking ahead at the time.





No, I'm sorry, this is not my hometown, otherwise I probably couldn't post this message in the first place.
But yes, at least I shot the pictures myself. And yes, it was _very_ deep.
I was also surprised how spacious those stations still were, at these depths. When I had to visit a toilet somewhere, I had to pass through long wide corridors, spacious staircases and large meeting rooms (all 120m under ground!) before getting to the toilet (with 4m high ceiling).

wicher, it's not a fact.
depths of stations in moscow, spb, kiev and other east slavic cities is because of difficult geology. the deepest station currently is arsenal'naya in kiev. it's over 120m under the ground. the station is located under high river bank. the next station after arsenal'naya is dnepr, which is located on the bridge over river. the station is partially underground. around 20% of station is underground and around 80% of station is on the bridge.
here is few shots of arsenal'naya

and of dnepr

Seattle's new light rail line, when open in 2009 will have a station under Beacon Hill at a depth of 165 feet or 50.3 meters.

Portland, Oregon has the deepest "transit" station in North America at 260 feet or 79.2 meters. Apperently it is also the second deepest "transit" station in the world. I don't know precisely what qualifies for transit.

The new Jerusalem rail station will be 80m bellow the surface due to rail incline limitation.

Paris

Métro's deepest station: 31,7 m. (Buttes-Chaumont)

But I wonder if some RER stations aren't deeper (Châtelet-Les Halles for instance)

The deepest metro system (not only one station, but the whole network) should be in Sankt Peterburg.

But not today. Perhaps it will be build. Perhaps, perhaps.

It will also be one of the highest situated stations in Barcelona, the mountain above it is some 200 meters so the actual depth is both -86 but also ~100+
