Hi guys,

 

I saw this story earlier today and thought it was a really interesting read, so though to share it with you all slight_smile

 

An architect has standardized some of the world's busiest metro systems, including the London Underground. See the link below!

Have you used any of these? How do they compare to the London Underground? I've used the Barcelona metro, which works very well indeed slight_smile

The Paris metro is disgusting and the novelty of double decker trains soon fades when the stench of urine hits you.
Honestly, I pay the extra for private transfers now.

Is it still that bad ?

 

I had the displeasure of working in Paris for several weeks back in the late 90s (in La Défense) and until then never appreciated that it smelt worse than London. Driving is atrocious, particularly the scooter+motor bike couriers, so not a lot going for it really.

The U-Bahn and S-Bahn in Berlin are amazing. Always on time, clean and most of all cheap!

You cannot beat ze German efficiency...

The Finnish underground map in Helsinki is so complicated I get lost in there every time... it even forks out in two different directions:

Smiley LOL

 

What I miss from this map in the London underground actually is the minutes indicators between each stop.
