The Washington, DC area's mass transportation system, run by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

Metro's flagship transportation system is the subway. It fails all the major requirements of a mass transit system, having none of the following: affordability for local governments, affordability for riders, stops in the most heavily visited places in the DC area, consistent and on-time trains, enough cars running for its ridership, and being able to go for more than a few weeks without a length of track catching fire.

The Metro was built on heavy rail because some brain trust figured that should the DC area become a war zone, it might be convenient to put freight cars and tanks on its tracks. Everyone knows that the best way to defend major landmarks is to put defensive weaponry several hundred feet underneath them, so this was a good plan.

A lot of people think the DC Metro is superior because it's clean. These are the same people who keep plastic on their couch cushions.

Correct definition. None of that bullshit biased shit you call a definition.

A metro or metrosexual is a male that is cares about his appearance and hygiene but is a heterosexual.

Anyone who says a metrosexual is actually a homosexual, is just jealous that these sensitive SNAG guys are getting laid more then them. Discrimination never gets you anywhere people. Report me, I dare you. You have nothing on me.

Common name for the underground mass transit system (subway) in both Montreal, QC and Paris, France. In Montreal the Metro runs exclusively underground on a dedicated electrified third rail right-of-way, with many of the stations having bus terminals. Run under the banner of the STCUM (Societe de Transports du la Communite Urbaine de Montreal--in french) Heavy rail passenger service is handled by a separate agency called AMT (Agence Metropolitain de Transports), and requires a separate zone-base fare system, rather than the transfer you get from the bus.
Lets take the metro to get the the Big-O so we can watch the expos... NOT!
