When I moved to Glasgow and started using the Underground system the first thing that came to mind was " this was built for the Lilliputians!" It was funny because the whole area is very closed and small, and the tubes for the trains and even the trains itself are small as well. Everything seemed to have been built for "wee" people.
Having got over that I started paying attention to the service itself. The trains run quite regularly and provide a a good transportation service for passengers within the central areas of Glasgow. You only have one line that goes around in a circle, in two directions (called the inner circle and outer circle). The area that it covers is very limited, and it is no doubts the best way to travel within the city centre, especially at peak times since there are no traffic jams or closed signals. In this respect I find the service quite good, but unfortunately very limited and localised. Probably it would be in everybody's benefit to extend it, so the underground can reach other areas and provide faster travelling to everybody.
