Mass Transit in the Big Cities

Taking the Train

New York City’s public transportation system is the biggest in United States, but just how big?

This infographic nicely summarizes that answer by comparing the US top mass transit train systems – NYC, Chicago, D.C., San Francisco and Boston.

NYC moves an astonishing 7.8 million people everyday day on its trains. The system with the second top ridership, D.C.’s Metro has 1 million riders.

The fastest system (based on average speed) is the BART at 35MPH, more than twice the speed of the slowest, the T.
