Me! Me! Me!

Since I grew up in NYC, I can't say that the subway here is the "best" because I'm so used to it.

So, I'd have to say that my favorite subway systems is the Washington D.C. Metro. After that I'd have to say Hong Kong and London.

Just to add a bit of info
I know the guy who holds the Guinness record for passing through each London UndergrounD station in the shortest possible time. He normally does an attempt about every 6 or so weeks.
He has given our club a talk on it. Held us spellbound for two hours

I love them. I like the Paris Metro, you can get across the city so quick. And it's nice how one station is so different from the next.

This was posted a little over a month ago, and may answer all your questions.

Personally, my favourites are the Boston "T", the Washington Metro, the Montréal Métro, the Frankfurt U-Bahn, and the Vienna U-Bahn.

Great pictures of the Pyongyang subway. My sister-in-law spent a semester in Moscow and most of the Moscow metro stations are similiarly decorated. Now if you like stamped concrete, go ride the Washington Metro.

I love Subways!! We use them anytime we're in a city that has one. I think it's a much easier way to travel (except when you're jammed in like sardines in a can!!)

I've been on subways in...
Washington D.C. (Metro)
Boston ("T"-I think that's what its called)
London (Underground/Tube)
Paris (Metropolitan)
Toronto (Can anyone help me on what it's called??)

I've got a ton of Underground souviniers & a couple Washington Metro & Boston T-shirts.

DeltaRules: The subway in Toronto is called the TTC (Toronto Transit Company, I think  Confused). I don't know if Torontonians have a special name for the subway, they may just call it "the subway."

You are correct, the Boston subway is colloquially referred to as the "T", short for MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority-http://www.mbta.com). The subway is made up of four subway lines (green, orange, red, and blue). A fifth line (technically a BRT, or advanced rapid bus line) called the Silver Line, will be operational within the next few months. The T also operates hundreds of bus lines around the metro-Boston area, commuter boat services in and around Boston Harbor and to outlying suburbs. In partnership with Amtrak, the T is also in charge of some 15 commuter rail lines that service cities from Newburyport (near New Hampshire) in the North, to Providence, RI in the south, and Worcester, MA in the west.

Overall, over 1,2 million people take the T every day, making the MBTA the fourth largest public transportation system in the United States!

I like the Montreal Metro the best. I rode it the evening it opened for the first time, in October of 1966 (I think it was a Friday). The first day was free. I rode both lines, end-to-end, after class at McGill.

Cheers,
Pete
