Comparing the World's Transit Systems
For Business Insider, Skye Gould and Sarah Scmalbruch "rounded up some of the best public transport systems around the world, from Paris, France, to Seoul, South Korea," measuring them by the objective characteristics of services, miles of track, ridership, run times, and costs.
