Toronto has 2 main subway lines. The yellow and the green. The yellow connects the city from North to South, and viceversa. From Finch To Union, From Union to Downsview. It looks like a letter "U". On the other side, the green line connects the city from East to West, From Victoria Park to Kipling. There two more subways lines, shorter and more outlying: the purple (Sheppard- Don Mills) and the blue (Kennedy – Scarborought), however, they are not as notoroius as the yellow and the green. So, four lines in the whole. Each subway station has their own bus station too. It is really hard to get lost in Toronto. Things are really easy there.

On the other hand, Buenos Aires demands from you a little more of attention. There are 6 main subway lines here. You can recongnize them by letters or colors. They are: A (sky blue), B (red) , C (navy blue), D (green), E(purple) and H (yellow and under construction).
A, B, D and E connect the city from West to East. On the contrary of Toronto, the downtown in Buenos Aires is loacted at the east and not at south. So, the east is called “the bajo” ( the low part of the city) and it is near the Río de la Plata (River Plate). These four subways lines go from west to east, and if you take a look at the map, we can say that they draw a letter “U”, as well. The others two lines, the navy blue and the yellow, cross the city from south to north. When the yellow is finished, the connection will be better.
Buenos Aires´ Subway Map
Taking the subway in Buenos Aires could be and adventurous experience, specially at the rush hour, but in someway you manage to survive. Lately, I saw many group of tourist taking the line A of the Subway. It has become a tourist attraction because it was the first subway line built in LatinAmerica. It was constructed in 1913 and it has the style of that period of time. I like travelling in the line A because it makes you feel like you are inside the Titanic :)
I like the way in which subway lines help to connect us!
