Thanks, but I'd like to make sure to get the exact logos that stand for the respective metro, e.g. is in use as entrance signs. And I don't want to blindly copy logos from Wikipedia without being sure they are original. Some people seem to add some imagination when they work for Wikipedia.

Kamakura monorail is this one but I cannot find a logo nor can I read their website.

I wasn't able to confirm the Mumbai logo. The tiny version on the website Wikipedia's logo page refers to looks different. Same goes for Dalian.

Thanks for Chongqing and Jacksonville though!

As you may have noticed, Gareth posted the logo of Enoshima Electric Railway (Enoden), not Shonan Monorail.



The logo of Shonan Monorail is this. You can actually see the tiny logo from their website too. (However, they now seem to be replacing the logo to generic pictograms on actual usages.)

You can see some other Japanese logos on my website, though I don't guarantee the accuracy of all.

What do you mean with 'generic pictograms'? I can only see small photos of buildings behind the links you posted.

I know your phantastic web page, the Japanese logos are a burst of creativity.

Sorry for late response. In regards to Vancouver's 'T' logo. I recreated that image myself. But, I have contacted Translink and they have said that it hasn't been officially launched as a brand yet and therefore there isn't access to it for the general public. They hope in the next few months once the final issues with the design standard are resolved and an implementation plan can be agreed upon, it will be more widely accessible. It is being used as you can see from that photo, and they are making it a permanent brand, so I'd use it on the website anyway.

The "T" logos were being used during the Vancouver Olympics, at least at the stations I used while I was there.

Here's a photo with the "T" being used at a station entrance:



Here's one from inside Waterfront Station directing people to the Skytrain station. It comes from a Translink-run blog tracking the implementation of the "T" logo. It looks like they are phasing in the new logo throughout the system.

Thanks for that info. I and others are already in contact with the person that does that blog. In my above post I was referring to the T brand being available to the public in print form or an official source so it can be used or linked for websites, etc. Currently the only way it's being used is in a physical form at stations and not launched as an official brand yet, ie. websites, promotional, on paper. This, we'll hopefully see in a few months depending on the criteria I mentioned and funding.

I know that is seal of Tokyo. I think TOEI (Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Transportation) uses it on its subway and buses too.

I actually prefer the Tokyo Metro symbol myself. I reckon that logo has to be my favourite.

Tokyo subway is interesting as well, but the "m" in metro logos is get common them, in tokyo situation. In são paulo the government they tried to use a standard logo with a existing logo, from STM, our metropolitain transport bureau.

Look left the train the "m" after "metropolitano" writing:

Metro Logos page updated!

Now it is! The new Metro Logos page comprises 177 distinct metro logos, 233 including future and metro-like systems, 273 including clones -- the ones that repeat in other cities.

And the page lets you play with the set and dynamically include or exclude clone logos or future metros, change the logo ordering or switch the display size between tiny and large.

Enjoy!

Amsterdam doesn't really have a strong history of promoting one single metro logo.

There is the logo of the company that runs the metro, but they also run buses, trams and ferries:

http://www.mijnamstelveen.nl/zestig-...p-een-traject/


And then they have also used this logo at metro entrances, but it has been a fairly recent thing, and they never made a big fuss about introducing it:

In other places they still have the old 'cubes' up:
