I barely ride transit cause I've always been driven around, but when I do, I have taken (in order of frequency) GO Transit, TTC, DRT, YRT, MiWay. I have only ridden the UPX once.

The only other place within Ontario where I have ever ridden transit was HSR's Waterfront Trolley.

And the only other places in the world I have ridden public transit are in China:

Beijing: one stop on subway line 4, plus a full one-way journey on the Airport Express towards the airport

Hong Kong: MTR (all the lines incl. South Island Line + light rail), KCR (only one round trip prior to the rail merger), tramway, KMB, LWB, Citybus, NWFB, minibus, NWFF, DB Transit...
