Travel Quality

If you were ever wondering about the quality of public transportation in Boston, Chicago, New York City, San Francisco, or Washington, you can checking customer ratings for every subway and bus line.

I’m not planning to visit any of these cities any time soon, but now I know that if I am in New York, the Q line is the highest rated subway (with a 7.3 out of 10 overall), followed by the No. 6 (with a 6.8). Of course it doesn’t matter how good a line is if it doesn’t go where you want to go. You might be stuck on a 2.8-rated G train.

I can’t find any similar rating system for the London Underground.

Here in Hooterville, we don’t have a train system, except for the one station with tracks leading to other towns and cities. However, we can still go three miles in 42 minutes, just like in the big cities. It can take 20 minutes just to get out of my side street in the morning.

    You moved! Congrats on the new digs. For a claustrophobe I’m really quite fond of the London underground though I’ll never be able to spend enough time on it to rate it. Less frustrating than the buses since we got the wretched Oyster cards – you can’t just jump on a bus now, oh no, if you don’t have an Oyster you have to buy a ticket from a machine at the stop meanwhile the bus goes away and you wait half an hour on the next one.
