Yeah, our rail system can't compare to New York or Berlin, but we're picking our fights and we totally kick Budapest's ass.
For a more thorough comparison of LA to the world, go here.
UPDATE: Hexod.us notes that although LA has far superior coverage of our subway system, Budapest beats us in the realm of cool chimes. The kind that sound when a train is ready to pull out of a station. You can even download the Budapest chimes here. Too bad our MTA couldn't think of something that cool. We're disappointed in them once again.
