The New York City Subway Map Redesigned
Tommi Moilanen

Cool exercise! I do feel that representing each line visually makes it hard to take basic info in at a glance and isn’t worth the trade-off of tracking local vs express. My sense is that tourists are just happy to get to their destination even if it takes a few extra stops in between. Would be interested to see how some quick user testing between the 3 maps would go — ! I also find the representation of Central Park to be a little overbearing compared to the rest of the map — it doesn’t seem to merit being the dominant thing drawing your attention.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
