# The Table Chart Illustrates Data on Underground Railway Systems

The table chart illustrates data on underground railway systems in six major cities, kilometres travelled and the number of passengers per year in millions. Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.

## Sample 1

The given table shows information about six different urban areas( London, Paris, Tokyo, Washington DC, Kyoto, and Los Angeles) underground trains, when they opened, how long their tracks are, and how many passengers are travelling per year in million.

Overall, the table reveals that, in spite of having a shorter route as compared to London, Tokyo has the highest number of passengers. Another fact is that only London, Paris, and Tokyo have the highest number of travellers.

First, in 1863, London opened its underground railway, and with a 394-kilometre route, 775 million people travelled every year. After that, in 1900, Paris unveiled its underground train, and now they have a 199-kilometre route, and every year about 1191 million passengers travel. In 1927, Tokyo, which inaugurated its underground trains with a 155-kilometre route, now has the highest passenger count, which is 1927 million people per year.

As for Washington, DC, they opened an underground train in 1976, and 144 million people travel the 126-kilometre route per year. Kyoto opened its underground train in 1981 and only has an 11-kilometre route with 45 million travellers per year, which is the lowest among other cities. Finally, in 2001, Los Angeles unveiled its subway trains, and now they have a 28-kilometre route with 50 million passengers per year.

## Sample 2

The table shows statistics on a subway in six significant towns, the distance covered and the number of travellers per annum in millions.

Overall, Tokyo recorded the highest number of passengers using the railway while Kyoto recorded the least However, London had the longest route and Kyoto with the shortest distance.

It is evident that the year 1927 recorded the highest number of passengers using the subway at 192 million with a 155km route, followed by Paris with 1a 99km route with 1191 passengers in the year 1900. London registered 775 million passengers in t862 despite having the longest path of 394km.

Kyoto had the shortest distance of 11km, thus recording the lowest number of passengers of 45 million using the subway in 1981. However, It was followed closely by Los Angeles with a 28km route with passenger numbers at 50 million in 2001.
