Why metro?

    Underground is the best transport for the big city. There are some reasons:
  1. Speed. There are no cross-roads, traffic jams, traffic lights for metrotrains. It's the fastest transport.

  2. Safety. Cars, buses, trams sometimes crash. And people die on the roads...

  3. Ecology. Electric trains do no exhausts.

  4. Economy. When people move faster, safer - it's a big economy, millions of dollars for the big city.

  5. Views of the city. More roads, more cars - less trees, parks. It is not beatiful perspective.
