>The Grass is Always Greener


Subway Blogger from NYC loves Metro’s cleanliness and aesthetic appeal.

I like NYC’s express trains, fixed, simple fares, monthly passes, 24 hour service, and stations that don’t take 5 minutes to get to the platform because they’re 35 stories underground (escalator length 500 feet, assumed 45 degree angle?).  Also, I like trains that only break down a fourth as often.  Walking transfers and free transfers between bus and rail are nice too.

Can we trade?  Not the whole system, but just a little bit of our architecture and cleanliness for a bit of your low fares and convenient service?
