Toronto has 'blue night' routes where the buses run all night.

I am jealous of all the transit systems that have either 24/7 operation of some kind. Florida, including Miami, really does not have anything close.

The best we get in Florida is buses (and in Miami, also trains) that run from 4am or 5am until midnight.

In Tampa, Florida, where I live. We only have 8 bus lines that operate from 4am until midnight. Several others manage to end at around 10 or 11pm, but most will end between 6pm and 9pm.

Sydney's CityRail (heavy rail) does not run 24/7, the first trains start at around 4:00am, and the last are at midnight.

The only 24/7 public transport available are a few bus routes, the NightRide bus system (which replaces CityRail trains) and the light rail, but only as far as Star City station. Past Star City the service finishes at midnight.

Budapest (Hungary) has a special but very extended night bus network having extra long bus lines and fixed connections where buses must wait for each other. Tram line 6, too, works all around the clock but subway lines and the rest of tram network is replaced by buses in the night.
Night buses have a line number 9xx (e.g. 907, 972, etc.) which are slightly related to day line numbers (e.g. 927 has a similar route like 272, 973 is similar to 173, etc.).
Night buses usually go twice an hour but have very long commonly used tracks, e.g. about 75% of 907 and 973 is common and schedules are synchronized so that in the common part of the line you can take a bus in each 15 minutes.

Copenhagen Metro has 24/7 all year, its automatically, so there's only the expense of electricity, which doesn't count as much. in weekends there's one train every 15 minuttes at night.

The subway, s-trian, is running from 4 to 1, and in weekends in hourly night service on every route, so the main line has about 20 minnutes service at night.

Else, there's an okay night bus service.

For a district-linking, crosstown metro line that nears no closer than approx. 2 miles to the edge of the (puny!) city centre, don't you find that 3AM-etc-headway too elevated for a place with relatively so few people?!?

Vancouver BC has one true 24 hour service. The N10 bus runs from 2:00am to 5:am every 30 minutes between Vancouver and richmond - providing overnight service when the SkyTrain is closed.

Othe night buses run throughout the region, including to the airport, but last trips from Vancouver leave at 3:10am, with first trips on day buses starting at 5am. Some suburban bus routes start at 4:00am and end at 3:00am.

After a little playing around with the Journey Planner I think it is more like a 24/2 system (metro runs Friday and Saturday nights).

Well the closest thing Sydney (or anywhere in Australia) has to a 24/7 subway is the Metro Light Rail, runs 24/7 between Central Station and the underground station at Star City Casino.

I think it is rather logical: in US, the share of regular users of subway and train systems in places like Chicago, Philadelphia and New Your metro areas who don't own a car is far higher than in Europe. In other words, there are less households that have cars but use transit in US than in Europe.

Also, the transit networks in US are more specialized and geared towards specific patterns than taken as a sort of "get-anywhere-even-if-it-takes-longer-on-transit" that orientates some transportation policies in European cities.

And "convenience" has a higher significance in the US. (A fact that I like.)

Thanks, I have removed Warsaw and added Sydney's LRT as well as Philly's Green Line to the Metrobits 24h page.

Some things that need to be updated/changed about Sydney on your site:

*A new underground line has been built (the Epping to Chatswood Rail Link), adding 4 underground stations.
*Not all Sydney trains are air-conditioned.
*The first of new walk-through trains have recently been introduced.

Actually I think it's very strange that big metropolis like Tokyo, London, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires etc. with their giantess size, million people, a vibrant night life and a lot of 24/7 shops, supermarkets etc. don't have a 24/7 subway!

I don't know about the situation in Asia, but in Western big metropolis, where usually most people who use subway (or other transit) also own a car, the costs of running a wide system 24/7 doesn't justify the ridership. Particularly, to keep a subway opened 24/7 requires a lot of expenses for a thin ridership.

So, in most cities, at night or odd hours/trips you use your case of bear the inconvenience of limited night services or the high costs of cabs.
