Very interesting book with lots of information and illustrations. I would recommend this book for transit enthusiasts and travellers. However, there isn't a lot of focus on Canadian transit systems, such as the SkyTrain system. Still, it's a great book to read.

The passenger rail services of the world's cities encompassed in the maps chronicled herein. Strongly recommended!
