Q: What is the difference between subway and metro ?
A: I might have gotten my words mixed up. I asked the train experts (my parents).. so both Subway and Metro train stations are underground. They are located and transports to whichever big city theyre closest too. My train that I'm familiar with goes both ways; above and underground. So basically they're the same thing. I use the term Metro cause that's what I'm familiar with. You can use any term, "I think I'll take the Subway today." or "What time does the Metra train come?" I'm sure people will know what you're talking about either way!
Hope I didn't confuse you. 😅🙈

Subways are trains that are underground.
