The Shanghai Metro is the longest metro system by route length.
The Beijing Subway is the metro system with the highest ridership.
The New York City Subway has the most stations.
The London Underground is the oldest metro system.

This list of metro systems includes electrified rapid transit train systems worldwide. In some cases, metro systems are referred to as subways, U-Bahns or undergrounds. As of October 2014, 157 cities[1] in 55 countries around the world host the approximately 160 metro systems that are listed here. The London Underground first opened as an "underground railway" in 1863 and its first electrified underground line opened in 1890,[2] making it the world's first metro system.[3] The metro system with the longest route length is the Shanghai Metro;[1][4] the busiest one is the Beijing Subway;[5][4] and the one with the most stations is the New York City Subway.[4]

Considerations[edit]

The International Association of Public Transport (L'Union Internationale des Transports Publics, or UITP) defines metro systems as urban passenger transport systems, "operated on their own right of way and segregated from general road and pedestrian traffic".[6][7] The terms Heavy rail (mainly in North America) and heavy urban rail are essentially synonymous with the term "metro".[8][9][10] Heavy rail systems are also specifically defined as an "electric railway".[8][9]

The dividing line between metro and other modes of public transport, such as light rail[8][9] and commuter rail,[8][9] is not always clear, and while UITP only makes distinctions between "metros" and "light rail",[6] the U.S.'s American Public Transportation Association (APTA) and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) distinguish all three modes.[8][9] A common way to distinguish metro from light rail is by their separation from other traffic. While light rail systems may share roads or have level crossings, a metro system runs, almost always, on a grade-separated exclusive right-of-way, with no access for pedestrians and other traffic. And in contrast to commuter rail or light rail, metro systems are primarily used for transport within a city, and have higher service frequencies and substantially higher passenger volume capacities. Furthermore, most metro systems do not share tracks with freight trains or inter-city rail services. It is however not relevant whether the system runs on steel wheels or rubber tyres, or if the power supply is from a third rail or overhead line.

The name of the system is not a criterion for inclusion or exclusion. Some cities use metro as a brand name for a transit line with no component of rapid transit whatsoever. Similarly, there are systems branded light rail that meet every criterion for being a rapid transit system. Some systems also incorporate light metro or light rail lines as part of the larger system under a common name. These are listed, but the light rail lines are not counted in the provided network data. Certain transit networks may match the service standards of metro systems, but reach far out of the city and are sometimes known as S-Bahn, suburban, regional or commuter rail. These are not included in this list. Neither are funicular systems, or people movers, such as amusement park, ski resort and airport transport systems.

This list counts metros separately when multiple metros in one city or metropolitan area have separate owners or operating companies. This list expressly does not aim at representing the size and scope of the total rapid transit network of a certain city or metropolitan area. The data of this list should not be used to infer the size of a city's, region's, or country's urban rail transit systems, or to establish a ranking. Doing so would in many cases lead to a gross misrepresentation.

Legend[edit]

The locations of all the world's metro systems
Countries with metro systems
City
Primary city served by the metro system.
Country
Sovereign state in which the metro system is located.
Name
The most common English name of the metro system (and the connecting article for that system).
Year opened
The year the metro system was opened for commercial service at metro standards. In other words, parts of the system may be older, but as parts of a former light rail or commuter rail network, so the year that the system obtained metro standards (e.g. electrified) is the one listed.
Year of last expansion
The last time the metro system was expanded in terms of the system length or number of stations.
Stations
The number of stations in the metro network, with stations connected by transfer counted as one.
System length
The system length of a metro network is the sum of the lengths of all routes in the rail network in kilometers (or miles). Each route is counted only once, regardless of how many lines pass over it, and regardless of whether it is single-track or multi-track, single carriageway or dual carriageway.
Ridership
The number of unique journeys on the metro system every year. There is a major discrepancy between the ridership figures: some metro systems count transferring between lines as multiple journeys, but others do not.

Notes[edit]

System notes[edit]

  1. ^ With its latest extensions in April 2018, Algiers Metro totals 19 stations: 16 of them were operational[11] and 3 were to open at a later date;[13] after five months, the first one (Ateliers) has entered in passenger service.[12]
  2. ^ Line H of the Buenos Aires Underground had its last expansions in May 2018
  3. ^ Vienna's Metropolitan Railway (Wiener Stadtbahn) first opened for service in 1898, operating steam locomotive trains on mostly elevated or underground ROWs. From 1976 onwards, part of it was integrated into the newly established Vienna U-Bahn system (lines U4 and U6), operating as a modern metro.
  4. ^ Line 3 opens on 19 April 2016
  5. ^ The Moskovskaya Line extended to Malinovka in 2014.
  6. ^ Line 2's loop was completed in 2009
  7. ^ Not including stations of premetro Lines T3, T4, and T7.
  8. ^ Includes METROREC's rapid transit lines only: Linha Centro (Center Line) and Linha Sul (South Line).
  9. ^ See Orange Line (Montreal Metro)
  10. ^ The Beijing Subway's first line began trial operations on 1 October 1969. It opened to revenue service under trial operations on 15 January 1971. Initially, only members of the public with credential letters from their work units could purchase tickets, but this restriction was removed on 27 December 1972. The subway line passed its final inspections and ended trial operations on 15 September 1981. During the trial operations period, annual ridership rose from 8.28 million in 1971 to 55.2 million in 1980. See the history section of the Beijing Subway for details and references.
  11. ^ The number is 311 for unique operational subway stations (i.e. different sets of platforms), or 364 if operational stations are counted multiple times for each line. Both counts excludes the stations of the Xijiao LRT Line.[58]
  12. ^ Length excludes the Xijiao LRT Line
  13. ^ Excludes light rail Line 3.
  14. ^ Excludes light rail Line 3.
  15. ^ First line of Foshan Metro serves two cities – Foshan and Guangzhou
  16. ^ The first MTR route to offer metro service was the Modified Initial System in 1979, which consists of portions of the later Tsuen Wan Line and Kwun Tong Line. Though the eventual East Rail Line opened as a conventional railway in 1910, it did not offer metro service until at least in 1982 when it was electrified.
  17. ^ South Island Line (East)
  18. ^ Line S7
  19. ^ This figure excludes Maglev line and Jinshan Railway, both often included in Shanghai Metro maps but not considered part of the system.
  20. ^ As of December 2017, the number is 393 if the 52 interchange stations (i.e. different sets of platforms) are counted multiple times, once for each line, while it's 324 if they're combined; shared tracks/platforms on Lines 3 and 4 are anyway counted as a single stations (nine in all between Hongqiao Road and Baoshan Road).
  21. ^ Extension of Line A from Itagüí south to La Estrella.
  22. ^ Line A was extended in April 2015.
  23. ^ Line 3's first section opened in 2012 and was extended in 2014.
  24. ^ Opening of the Länsimetro extension on 18 November 2017.
  25. ^ Opening of Toulouse Metro Line B.
  26. ^ Opening of Line U4.
  27. ^ The U3 extension from Olympia-Einkaufszentrum (OEZ) to Moosach.
  28. ^ The official source states there are 100 stations in Munich U-Bahn system, but notes that four connecting/transfer stations have been counted twice; thus, there are 96 stations counting all stations once.
  29. ^ The U3 extension from Friedrich-Ebert-Platz to Nordwestring.
  30. ^ The Blue Line (Line 3) also has a 20.7 kilometres (12.9 mi) section (with 4 stations) to the airport that is owned by the Hellenic Railways Organisation and is mainly used by the suburban railway system.

  31. ^ The Green Line (Line 1), operated until 2011 by Athens-Piraeus Electric Railways, was opened in 1869 as a steam train railway line. It was electrified in 1904, extended with underground sections through the city in 1948, and extended to its full length to Kifissia in 1957 using the right-of-way of a former metre gauge suburban line. Full metro operation since 1904 between Piraeus and Athens and 1957 to Kifissia. In 2011, it was integrated with Athens Metro under the company STASY S.A.

  46. ^ The Seoul Subway (Lines 1-9) is actually operated by two different operators – Seoul Metro and Seoul Metro Line 9 Corporation (SLM9), plus the through-operation by Korail – but because all of these lines are owned by the City Government of Seoul, here in the table they're counted together as one system.
  47. ^ a b c Seoul's Metropolitan Subway system can also be viewed as a comprehensive metro network made up of multiple owned/operated metro systems.

  54. ^ Some sections of the Rotterdam Metro (portions of Lines A and B) have some level crossings (with priority) and so could therefore be considered "light rail" instead of "metro".
  55. ^ a b These systems have similarities to light rail systems, because of existence of road level crossings, but are listed since there are almost entirely separated from roads.
  56. ^ The first underground portion was opened in 1928, but that was a tram line. One surface line has origins from 1898. System opened as a full Metro in 1966.

  66. ^ Opening of lines M2 and M3.
  67. ^ Extension to Gürsu.
  68. ^ Currently operational metro standards lines, M1–M5 and M6, only included. All other Istanbul lines or segments are either tram or commuter rail, or are under construction, and so are not included here.

Ridership notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q All American Public Transportation Association (APTA) figures are derived from unlinked transit passenger trips (i.e. a transfer between two lines counts as two passenger trips, transferring twice counts as three trips, etc.).
  2. ^ This ridership figure is the sum of the "Heavy Rail (HR)" and "Intermediate Rail (IR)" figures for Toronto from the APTA Ridership report – in other words, this figure includes ridership on the Line 3 Scarborough (RT) line which APTA considers to be "Intermediate Rail (IR)".
  3. ^ Counted in with Guangzhou's ridership figures.
  4. ^ Note that:
    1. annual ridership is derived from the sum of each month's "Monthly Total" for each year;
    2. the ridership includes "MTR Lines", "Airport Express" and "Cross-boundary";
    3. "Intercity, Light Rail & Bus" are excluded from the counts.
  5. ^ Figure extrapolated from 3.6 million average daily boardings
  6. ^ Does not include ridership on the RER/Transilien (1411 million in 2016) and the Tramways (287 million).
  7. ^ This ridership figure is the sum of the "Ηλεκτρικός (Γ1 line, formerly ran by IASA)" and "Μετρό (Γ2 and Γ3 lines, formerly ran by AMEL)" figures from the OAΣA's 2015 Activity Report.
  8. ^ This ridership figure is obtained by the average per day ridership figures of line 1-purple and line 2-green from the BMRC's FY2017 Annual Report.
  9. ^ This ridership figure is obtained by the average per day ridership monthly figures from the RMGL's FY2014 Annual Report.
  10. ^ 54.5 million including 4 Funicular lines
  11. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m Compared to European or North American systems, Japanese rapid transit systems are generally neither thought of as metros nor as completely subterranean "subways" complicating whether only using the municipal subway statistic is accurate when comparing with other Metros around the world. As example Tokyo Metro and the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation's Toei Subway constitute only 22% of the 14.6 billion metropolitan railway ridership in Greater Tokyo (MLIT Yearly Statistics). In addition, when one considers intracity lines of JR East and private railway companies, Greater Tokyo (130 lines) has higher daily ridership than any other metropolitan area in the world with 14.6 billion passengers annually. The Osaka Municipal Subway also has only a minority share of all metropolitan railway ridership in Greater Osaka, constituting only 17.6% of Greater Osaka's 4.745 billion rail passengers annually in 2010. Including the municipal subway systems in both Kobe and Kyoto, the result still only comprises 22% of all rail travel in the Greater Osaka area with 1065.8 million passengers yearly (MLIT Yearly Statistics). For Greater Nagoya, the Nagoya Municipal Subway has only a minority share of all metropolitan railway ridership in Greater Nagoya constituting only 38% of Greater Nagoya's 1.095 billion rail passengers annually in 2010 (MLIT Yearly Statistics). For a complete list of urban rail systems in Japan with ridership statistics, see List of urban rail systems in Japan.
  12. ^ This ridership figure includes the Busan-Gimhae Light Rail Transit ridership in the total.
  13. ^ This figure counts only gate-passers, so it only includes Seoul Metro and Seoul Subway Line 9 riders. Other lines that function as separate systems within the greater Seoul urban rail network are excluded.
  14. ^ a b Ridership is based on unlinked passenger trips (i.e. a transfer between two lines counts as two trips, transferring between three lines counts as three trips, etc.).
  15. ^ This ridership figure is the sum of the total annual boardings (inbound and outbound) on the four lines (Gwacheon/Ansan, Bundang, Ilsan and Suin) from the accompanying reference. Overall, Korail metro/commuter lines in Seoul Metropolitan Area (SMESRS) carry 1,134 million passengers annually (2015).
  16. ^ This figure includes in full the ridership on Amstelveen Line (Line 51).
  17. ^ Note: Operated during Hajj only.
  18. ^ Figures obtained adding 62 m passengers of FGC's Barcelona-Vallés line and 390,4 m passengers of TMB
  19. ^ Ridership figure is for rapid transit Line M2 only; ridership on the light rail M1 line is excluded.
  20. ^ This ridership figure is obtained by the average per day ridership monthly figures from the BEM's 2017 Ridership Report.
  21. ^ Does not include ridership on the separate Docklands Light Railway (122 million), London Overground (189 million), Tramlink (29 million), or National Rail systems within Greater London.
  22. ^ L.A. Metro's heavy rail lines, the Red and Purple Lines, only.
  23. ^ Three-months service suspension (from 20 September to 19 December 2017) due to Hurricane Maria's effects
