On any trip to a big city, it’s always good to utilize public transportation in order to keep costs down and protect the environment. One of the best public transportation options is the Metro, a fascinating system of underground tunnels and trains that can rapidly take you from one side of a city to another.
Are you a metro lover that’s looking to plan a trip to the United States? These three cities have huge and fascinating metro systems that you will love exploring.
New York City Subway
The New York City Subway is one of the largest systems in the world and the biggest in the United States and is famed for its gritty, yet lovable, character. Street musicians and buskers entertain riders in eclectically-decorated stations that cover all five boroughs of the heart of American city life.
The United States’ capital, despite not being one of the nation’s largest cities, has an enviable Metro system with an iconic and recognizable station design that jumps out due to its vaulted ceilings. Not only does this Metro cover DC, but it also covers suburban areas in Maryland and Virginia.
BART (San Francisco)
Another metro station that gives you the option of staying in more affordable accommodation in the suburban areas outside of the city center is BART, which covers the San Francisco Metro Area. Its combined system of under and over-ground rail connects nearly all the Bay Area’s population to San Fran.
