The 5 cities with best Mass Transportation Systems
Locally, Paris is most-frequented public transportation is the Metro: across 16 lines, its closely spaced stations (around 500 meters between them on any given line) allow a connection between any capital quarter to any other, and a few lines extend quite far into the suburbs. This mass transportation system is complemented above-ground by a quite complex bus route map of 347 lines, and, since 1992, the tramway has made reappearance in eight lines around the capital periphery. The Transilien, a rail network radiating from the capital’s train and RER stations, compliments this in turn with yet more suburban destinations.
Berlin has a highly complex transportation infrastructure providing very diverse modes of urban mobility. 979 bridges cross 197 kilometers of inner-city waterways, 5,334 kilometers (3,314 mi) of roads equipped with various traffic management technologies run through Berlin, of which 73 kilometers (45 mi) are motorways. Long-distance rail lines connect Berlin with all of the major cities of Germany and with many cities in neighboring European countries. Regional rail lines provide access to the surrounding regions of Brandenburg and to the Baltic Sea.
London has an extensive mass transport system which includes both private and public services. Journeys made by public transport systems account for 25% of London’s journeys while private services accounted for 41% of journeys. London’s public transport network serves as the central hub for the United Kingdom in rail, air and road transport.
Public transport services are dominated by the executive agency which uses many traffic technologies for transport in London: Transport for London (TfL).
London uses a traffic technology solution in the form of an electronic ticketing system called the Oyster card which holds tickets for public transport systems in Greater London.
The transportation system of New York City is a network of complex infrastructural systems. New York City, being the most populous city in the United States, has a mass transportation system which includes one of the largest subway systems in the world using the best in class traffic management solutions; the world’s first mechanically ventilated vehicular tunnel; and an aerial tramway. New York City’s airport system, which includes John F. Kennedy International Airport, LaGuardia Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport (located in New Jersey), Stewart Airport and a few smaller facilities, is one of the largest in the world.
The transport network in Greater Tokyo includes an intelligent traffic system of public and private rail and highway networks; airports for international, domestic, and general aviation; buses; motorcycle delivery services, walking, bicycling, and commercial shipping. While the nexus is in the central part of Tokyo, every part of the Greater Tokyo Area has rail or road transport services.
Similar to London, Tokyo also uses a smart card system which avails purchase of tickets for their mass transportation system and saves a great deal of time which is so precious in big cities.
Public transport within Greater Tokyo is dominated by the world’s most extensive urban rail network of clean and efficient surface trains and subways run by a variety of operators, with buses, trams, monorails, and other modes supporting the railway lines.
