Long way to go to ride them all. But there have been a number of cities I've visited, where the system seemed too similar to what I already knew to bother ride. Denver and Baltimore LRT systems being notable examples. But there are a fair number of cities I've visited that I didn't get a chance to explore the transit system.


Where I've been: Salt Lake City, New York City, San Francisco, Portland, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Paris, Amsterdam, Monaco, Nice, Rome, Seattle, Los Angeles, DC, San Diego, Albuquerque, Tucson, Yuma, Denver, Vegas suburbs, Baltimore, DC suburbs, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago....
