We were tipped off to this by Gothamist, and boy does it smell of BS.
Virgin Vacations (as in British based Virgin Atlantic Airlines) rated the top 11 Underground Transit systems in the world. Well whada you know, London’s Tube came in at #1. A little bias don’t you think?
The New York City Subway didn’t even rank in the top 5! It crawled in at number 7. Booo. The Russians even beat us (coming in at number 3)!! At least they have something going right over there.
Ok, so if you were rating based on cleanlyness and security, well then we’re shocked we even made the list. But in terms of how well the sytem gets you around the city, you would think the NYC subway would have ranked higher. For that matter, NYC is the only one with a 24 hour system! Surely that earns some points somewhere.
Anyway, check out the clearly Euro-Favored rankings here.
