Bangalore: Subways, also known as Metros, are an easy and economical form of rapid transit in more than 160 cities across the world. Some subways are extremely busy and crowded, especially during commuting hours since most of the people across the world prefer commuting in it as it saves time and they can reach their destination much earlier. Here is the list of 10 busiest subway systems in the world as listed by Rediff.

Tokyo Metro, Japan (Ranked 1):

Tokyo, the capital of Japan is the most populated metropolitan area and home to the world’s busiest metro systems, with approximately 8.7 million riders daily and 3.16 billion riders annually. The Tokyo Metro was opened in 1927. The Tokyo Metro is extremely punctual and has regular trains arriving in less than five minutes. However it does not run 24 hours a day. Due to severe crowd during peak hours, the platform attendants also known as oshiya are sometimes needed to push the riders and their belongings into the train cars so that the doors can close. In some of the Tokyo Metro lines, the first and the last car of a train are reserved for women.
