The subway in Toronto is called the TTC (Toronto Transit Company, I think
). 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!
