A few weeks ago, we asked the question, what is your favourite public transit system around the world? And we have the results!!

189 of you voted in this poll and the winner, as the title of this post suggests, is The Tube [2]! It doesn’t just have to do with Paddington station, does it? I love that bear.

transitpollchartWe loved getting so many responses! Besides the options in the poll, there were tons of comments on the blog and Facebook about other favourites. Including Portland’s Metro Area transit [3], The Bus [4] transit system in Honolulu, the Amtrak Cascades [5] that spans across the Pacific Northwest, the Singapore SMRT [6], Los Angeles’ Metro [7] and the Adelaide Metro [8].

So with this feedback, I’m curious. What do you value most in a transit system to make your favourites, your favourites?
