  1. You haven’t explained why these systems are complicated. They are certainly extensive, but that doesn’t necessarily make them complicated.

    Also the London Subway, Paris Subway, Tokyo Subway and Seoul Subway do not exist. However, the London Underground, Paris Metro, Tokyo Metro and Seoul Metro do.

    Perhaps at least some minimal research next time?

    1. But Aquaman, you cannot marry a woman without gills! You’re from two different worlds!

      “You haven

  2. Tokyo Metro is far more complicated. After the 14 regular subway lines you also have numerous JR national railway above ground lines and stations, and even more privately owned and publicly used rail lines that go to surrounding cities and around Tokyo. This “breakdown” lacks depth in comparisons and information.

  3. The New York underground is hell on earth! Understaffed, and with lines that are variously named by number or alpha letters, some trains are express, some are part express, electronic info boards detailing when to expect a train and where it will stop are rare or inadequate, announcements are faint or muffled, reroutes are myriad and information for the uninitiated non-existent or brief to the point of rudeness by staff. If it wasn’t for the kindness of fellow passengers I’d probably still be trapped down there, trying to find an escape route.

  4. I’ve been on the Taiwan metro at age ten, and it’s not complicated. However, you’ve got about 200 people at every stop, and they are rushing towards other trains. At age 10, I went alone, and my family congratulated me, for it’s not everyday that you see a kid alone on the metro. My parents said next I should try the Tokyo metro.

  5. The London Underground is not complicated at all it is simple . Even my
    dad who finds it hard to travel around does not find the tube hard at all .
    It is so easy though it looks slightly complex That i travelled all alone even though i am only 11 and i had no trouble changing trains or where to get off . Though i would complain that the trains used are pretty crowded
    and literally there is about 199 people at every station .
