The only thing a bit odd about the current carnation of it is the East London line and the Piccadilly line around Heathrow.

At least they've straightened out the Central line within the circle line (mostly) now. It used to have kinks all over the show.

The map was originally supposed to be clear. This one is far from that... The zones, the wheelchair symbols, and the ridiculous amount of curves in the London Overground make it look crap.

Look at that annoying kink in the Jubilee line around Waterloo, or how crushed West London is around Paddington.

There have been attempts to redesign it to make it easier on the eye, see here and here.

Even if the curvy version is as mess than the official one.

It's an attractive mess, the official one is neither attractive nor clear.

I must admit I really like this one It's a lot less 'kinky' than the official edition, though I wonder whether all the extra info is really necessary (walking distance connections, step-free platform access etc.).

But 'Edgington'? Come on..."Kenningware" has a way better ring...

The Kenningware line should remain black, as the vertical black of the Northern line and the horizontal red of the Central line were meant to be the main 'axis' of the map, so to speak... The Bank branch should be called the "City & South London line" IMO.

I made that Edgington map (Don't look too closely at Farringdon).

I included the step-free info because those that fund the tube insist that it is included on the official map. They've recently added some walking distance information.

The ideas in my map are much more likely to be accepted if I also include the information that is required due to the politics surrounding the map. I did have a version with the Paddington-Heathrow line, but someone from TfL told me that no-one would take it seriously if 'the competition' were included.

Who? TfL, the Government or the infracos?

And your map is far superior to the current one, by the way.

Have you tried adding Crossrail on it without completely messing up the Circle line?

Urgel23, when you post those images, could you please state what city they are of, rather than just leaving everyone to guess. Obviously this one is of Madrid, but people might not know that.

I think you need to get some perspective. The tube map is brilliant. A few curves in the map hardly make it a terrible design.

It is crap compared to ones in the past which were much clearer. See here. The 2001 one was the best modern version IMO.

Need a couple more US ones in here.

Washington D.C. Metro
Second busiest rail transit system in the country after New York. 106 miles of track, 118 stations, and just over 1 million daily riders. First segment built in 1976. (All that, and DC still has shitty traffic )

Boston Rail Ways, portions of which date back to 1897. The oldest subway system in the country.
