World Metro Database

You might want to start with one of the predefined tables (Basics, Numericals, Features, Complete), then add columns or click to remove them. Move columns < left or > right. Click headers to sort, click again to reverse sorting. Switch unit to miles if desired. Right-click here to bookmark current World Metro Table.

All numerical data by Jordi Serradell, except: Ridership data by John Kennes. UN population data by Nordpil 2010. Ticket prices by UBS (Prices and Earnings, 2009, PDF, p. 20). Gauge, voltage, train width, and non-numerical data by Mike Rohde. Cities found their way into the list according to Metrobits' criteria.

'Stations*' (with an asterisk) counts each interchange station as one. Daily ridership is annual ridership divided by 365 (for convenience; please note that weekday and weekend ridership may differ significantly and refer to the Annual Ridership column if desired). Ticket prices are for 10 km or 10 stops Price of a single ticket for the public transport network (bus, streetcar or metro) for a journey of approx. 10 km/6 miles or at least 10 stops (2009). Only one logo per city is shown.
