Toronto has best public transit system in canada, Walk Score reports

Toronto has been ranked as the Canadian city with the best public transit system for a population of over 500,000, according to Walk Score, the organization best known for determining the walkability of a neighbourhood. We're also ranked higher than the majority of our neighbours south of the border. 
"In comparison to the United States, Toronto and Montreal score better than any large U.S. city except New York and San Francisco," Walk Score says. 
The rankings are based on an algorithm that measures "how well a location is served by public transit. Addresses with a Transit Score of 90-100 are considered a 'Rider's Paradise.'" Several areas in Toronto had high transit scores. The Bay Street Corridor, Kensington-Chinatown, and University scored a perfect grade. Church-Yonge Corridor, Moss Park, Trinity-Bellwoods, Waterfront Communities-the Island, and Dufferin Grove all had transit scores of 99.
Here is a list of the top 10 Canadian cities for public transit, according to Walk Score. 
1) Toronto (78)
2) Montreal (77)
3) Vancouver (74)
4) Winnipeg (51)
5) Ottawa (49)
6) Brampton (48)
