I don't have a problem with the M...just thought you could design it closer to the shape of the M that they used to replace the original rail design. A bit thicker with the pyramid shape.

Still, I like your design too.

1. London Underground
2. Melbourne - superb design
3. Tokyo - sure beats the old 'S' they used to have.
4. U-Bahn - any of them. Love the simplicity.

5. Vancouver. A bit biased, but like U-Bahn I love the simplicity.

Where does this image come from? I'd like to include it in the logos collection but need a reliable source to make sure it's the real thing.

Do you mean this one? It's only very new, I'm surprised anyone from outside of Melbourne has seen it before.



I quite like the Sydney CityRail logo.

Santo Domingo is there, including the logo but it's not yet on the logos page because the new version that will really show all logos is not yet coded.

Vancouver's logo is really nice. I also like the "U" used in some German cities and Vienna. A logo should be simple and easily recognizable.
