Southern US Transit > Miami
Metrorail

Miami

Who says you can't build a subway in Florida. Okay Metrorail never dives underground, hence Metro. The metro cars are identical to the Baltimore Metro, as they were ordered together (a rarity in transit circles). The system is clean an efficient. However is confusing to transfer from a bus to the train. Apparently you need to ask for a bus to rail transfer, as std transfers do not apply.

There are major expansion plans in the works for this system.
