When the journey matters as much as the destination!
We all know that first and business class flights are the best way to get you to your dream destination and home again. They provide the ability to “hit the ground running“, making the most of your holiday due to being rested and relaxed on the journey.
But once you’ve arrived, do you actually need to jump in a cab to get to your hotel? In some cases, the best cities for public transport in the world have made it easier to utilise than to deal with cabs… and often for a fraction of the cost. So if you’re spending a couple of days exploring the sights and experiences of one of these amazing cities, do as the locals do.
Quite possibly the best public transport system at the moment is an honour that Singapore can claim with the MRT. With an easy-to-understand ticketing system; fast, clean, and regular services that cover all the major areas and attractions; easily navigable stations and easy-to-use electronic trip planners; and all at reasonable prices. You can also get tourist passes that provide unlimited travel for 1 – 3 days, and kids under 7 are free!
Billed as the most efficient public transport system in the world, the Tokyo Metro moves a staggering amount of people every day and makes exploring this city easy and safe. In fact, Tokyo‘s public transport is so efficient that the train companies apologise to commuters if they are running early!
Not a contender in most people’s lists of the best cities for public transport due to Sydney’s metro train services may not have the reach of other cities, the big draw of this city’s is the network of ferries operating in Sydney Harbour. Providing access to Taronga Zoo and Manly Beach, the journey is not just scenic… it is possibly the best views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House that you can get.
It may not be the quickest, the cleanest, or even the best way to get around this amazing city, but the New York Subway is such a well-recognised attraction from movies and TV that you would be remiss to not try it out. And with over 470 stations on the network, it can boast to be the largest metro network in the world.
There are many other cities that have fantastic public transportation networks, from Paris’s famous Metro and RER, to Chicago’s “L” trains, and San Francisco‘s Streetcars. The clean and safe trains of Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Seoul each offer fantastic access to their city’s attractions, and the Beijing Subway efficiently moves its citizens and tourists alike, with all four of these cities having ample English signage both onboard and at stations.
