Cities such as Melbourne and Bangkok, with their fairytale trams and high skytrains, did not make the cut, according to the survey, which was based on a simple question: “Is it easy to get around your city by public transportation?”
According to the poll, Tokyo was ranked third for managing a smooth transportation network for both residents and non-Japanese speakers.
Meanwhile, Mumbai has a sprawling suburban train network that is a boon to the metropolitan region’s 12.5 million residents. According to the survey, “81 percent of locals say it’s easy to cross Mumbai by public transportation, and the system certainly keeps the metropolis moving, with millions using the city’s buses, rickshaws, metro, and taxis on a daily basis.”
