Say goodbye to the stress of traffic and the price of gasoline and check out one of the five best public transportation cities in North America. Public transportation sometimes gets a bad reputation, but when a city does it right, it can change your entire lifestyle. If a North American city wants to compete with the rest of the world’s cities, it needs to be able to get people where they need to go, and that starts with a comprehensive infrastructure that has the money and workers needed to keep it efficient and safe.
New York, New York. New York’s public transportation system is awesome because it needs to be awesome. The city has too many people going from place to place to get by without it. You can get anywhere, just about any way you want to, and the city spends more than any other city to ensure that you get there quickly and safely. Now, as far as cleanliness goes, that’s a little bit debatable. But it works as intended, at least!
Boston, Massachusetts. Boston’s subway, railway, and bus systems are the products of years of innovation to get one of North America’s oldest systems running at lightning speed. Especially when the weather gets harsh every winter, this city makes sure that you can get to work and stay warm at the same time. Some of the layouts aren’t always the most intuitive, but subway veterans should have no problems.
Denver, Colorado. Denver’s commitment to public transportation shows that you don’t have to be one of the two or three biggest metropolitan cities in the world to get the credit you deserve. They have a bus system and a light rail system, with even a free bus route through part of the heart of downtown Denver. Talk about progressive, right?
