is not the best but i think that the subway of my city (santiago, chile) is cute c: i know that someone posted pictures before but i want to do something with more information













we pay the ticket with this




we have this called "bibliometro" is a service that is present in the more important station. is like a library






this is a service called bicimetro the idea is like a Bicycle nursery. u take your bicycle and when u arrive to the station u can save your bicycle there (is only present in the more important stations)

I used the Skytrain last week and personally I was extremely impressed. Their stations and trains are very clean and nice looking. The "zone" system takes a little time to get used to but is very intuitive and wallet friendly. We went from Waterfront (the central terminus in the downtown core) all the way to the airport (via a change at Bridgeport) for only $2.50 per person. In Toronto, you can't even get from one bus stop to the next for that amount. I don't know how the other lines are but Canada Line was quite awesome.

I've now used the Metro system in NYC, Toronto and Vancouver and I am sad to say that I feel Toronto's system is the most lacklustre. It doesn't have the extensive coverage like the NYC system nor does it have the cleanliness and user friendliness of the Vancouver system. It kind of occupies the unhappy medium between the two.

Sad to say, you'd hardly know now that Toronto used to be North America's model city!

Best subway I've been on is Beijing. Pretty crowded but really efficient and it serves most of the city for 2 RMB. Slightly dirty but I like it.

Other metros I've been on:

Shanghai: Really good, super clean, modern, but not so fast and fare can get high (up to 9 RMB)
New York: Really dirty and loud, but it works
Tianjin: New, small, modern, but few use it yet
Boston: Horrible. Local gov't has had no interest in upgrading the system ever. Shitty trams that are slow and take forever to go anywhere. The system has gotten smaller over time and few of the promised extensions ever get built.
