World's Most Crowded Subways: Paris

Paris Metro/Alamy

No. 9 Paris

Annual Ridership: 1.52 billion

Opened in 1900 during the World’s Fair, the Paris Métro gifted the city with architect Hector Guimard’s now-iconic Art Nouveau station entrances and signage. Gare Saint-Lazare, one of the busiest stations in Europe, has been a favorite among artists: Monet painted the station, as did his cohorts Édouard Manet and Gustave Caillebotte.
