True, there are slow Australian systems, I never claimed otherwise. And debating whether or not something is subjectively slow is just pointless anyway.
Most of the rest of the world doesn't exactly look at US public transportation systems for inspiration, shall we say.

If you have a negative comment about the US in General keep it to yourself... Its really immature , and has no place on a thread like this...

Well, I was simply saying that for the US, sure PATH is fast, but from rheintram's (presumably a foreigner) point of view it was slow. I don't think there's anything immature about that.

I wont clutter the thread up with this any longer

I would agree that most US cities have pretty awful public transportation systems. NYC however, is a pretty outstanding exception, with a rail transit system whose service and coverage is rivaled only by that of Tokyo's.

I'm just curious as to which criteria you measure this by? Take London for example: the Tube network alone is longer than New York's subway system; then factor in the Docklands Light Railway, London Overground, Tramlink and an extensive surface rail system and you have around 640 stations giving pretty extensive coverage. If we're talking about ridership, Tokyo wins hands down and by some distance.

Btw, I'm not trying to start a 'my transit system is bigger than your transit system' debate; that's been done to death on other threads. Merely pointing out with a couple of examples how superlatives of this kind should be treated with caution.

I've found it's not how big your transit system is, but rather knowing how to use it. Oh wait, I was thinking of something else.

This is the photo, which I tried to copy from WTC page on Instagram. Firstly, it has been failure, secondly, it's old-dated. Taken by PANYNJ in September this year, this is a very spectacular photo from the sky:
