Canada:

Burlington

Europe:

It's much more fun to transit-fan in Asia then North American............since the cities are not laid out in grid-form, the bus routes are much more "creative" than North American..........."36 Finch West"/ "15 Cambie" :D Also since Asian cities are more relied on public transportation than private cars, the service frequency is very high, meaning there are tons of buses and you have a huge variety of buses to ride on!

-TTC

-HSR

-BT (Burlington Transit)

-MT

... that's it, really. I've actually only ridden MT about once or twice when I was younger. I don't remember much... aside from the destination sign scrolling louder than TTC busses (probably cause Mississauga is so quiet, its all you can hear).

I rode TTC throughout the nineties until 2001. I still ride it when I make visits.. but I don't take the bus nearly as often. I haven't been on a New Look for about 3 years now.

I rode BT a couple times back in 2002/2003 but I haven't ridden it since. Nothing special really, the Invero was the only ride I was interested in... which was disappointing.

I ride the HSR every time I go out... frequenting the east end routes (Barton, Bayfront, Cannon, King).
