>Transit System Collection

>When I travel to a city that has a transit system, I usually try to ride it, even if it doesn’t make sense for me to do so (I’m looking at you, Pittsburgh!). I collect a system map and a ticket (if they have one). I finally decided to write down my “collection” of transit systems. Take a look, and if you’re feeling up to it, post your own collection.

My wife would like to note that some of items involved significant wastes of time and riding in the “wrong” direction compared to what we would have been doing at the time.


In no particular order:

List of Transit Systems I’ve ridden:
Chicago, IL (Subway & Bus)
