Living in a big city has its own perks, like being able to go to top-tier restaurants, visiting cultural attractions, and enjoying the exciting nightlife. But one of the most important things is getting around; if you don't have a car, it can be challenging.

However, if you live in some of the biggest cities in the U.S, with their extensive subways and other transportation systems, not having a car can actually be a good thing. A city with an excellent public transport system can help you travel to different places easily, without the expense of car repairs, gas, and parking.

Following are some of the top public transits in the U.S. that can help you to easily travel to the places you want to visit and explore.


New York City, New York

The NYC subway is a way of life for millions of residents and the perfect passage for any new visitor to the city. It is one of the country's largest transit systems, with almost 1.7 billion riders each year. The city also has a successful bus system with almost 2.2 million riders on average per weekday. Over 77% of the residents approve of the system, and over half of the residents take public transit to commute throughout the city.

Seattle can be a good example for some urban communities to create an effective transportation framework. Seattle might not be the most prominent US city but its transportation framework is vigorous and highlights rail, buses, trolleys, and water taxis. All of the city's transit stations are ADA accessible, so they are a good way to for everyone to travel throughout the city.






Portland, Oregon

Typically, Portland, Oregon inhabitants care very much about the climate, so it's not unexpected that they have an incredible city transportation framework. They have a transport and rail framework (known as TriMet), and so locals and visitors can get around the city for a cheap fare.

A light rail line rushes to the air terminal, and the two means of transport and trains go around like clockwork every day. The city likewise has a Hop Fastpass application, making it simple to oversee fares and pay for rides from a cell phone. All travel stations in Portland are ADA accessible; another positive!
