What cities in the US have subways or other mass transit systems — other than buses?
Fortunately for anyone who doesn’t want to — or can’t — drive around a big city, most major metropolitan areas now offer some sort of public transit system that runs on rails.
On the east coast, many cities benefit even today from mass transit systems being built many decades ago, and so subway systems are most common. (For a little frame of reference, New York’s first subway element was first put into use in 1904. As a railroad, however, the system dates back to 1863.)
On the western half of the country, however, you see more light rail systems — which are much easier to add to a city that already has a population of significant size.
Here are a few of the cities with public transit systems, along with links to get maps, schedules, fare information and other details.
