It's great to see that BART (San Francisco) has changed their system map back to the way it was in the 70's and 80's. It's more stylistic and diagrammatic than the recent geographically correct map.

See it on www.bart.gov and click on system map.

Me neither. Just upload your file to ImageShack or PhotoBucket and link to it from here.

Not even mods can post attachments. Probably because there is no storage space set aside for it where the forum is hosted. You have to upload it to a different host.

This is the most simplified subway map that has been made for London in recent times.

Changes include:

- River Thames removed

- Explanations for station closures etc. removed

- Zones removed

That map clearly shows the District and Northern lines actually both consist of two different lines. For the District line: a line from Edgware Road to Earl's Court, branching off to Kensington and Wimbledon, and a line from Upminster to Earl's Court, branching off to Wimbledon, Richmond and Ealing Broadway. The Northern line has two distinct main lines, one going through the City; the other one through Tottenham Court Road.
Makes you wonder when they'll split those lines into distinct lines, like the split between the Metropolitan and Hammersmith&City lines which occurred in '87 (?).

Oh, the old one looks so much better! And BART isnt a very complicated system so they dont need actually to simplify it, in my opinion.

I wonder if the change was just on the website or if they are implementing on the trains. The stations had a colorful version of the second map and in the schedules they had a bare bones schematic of the lines and stations just to show their sequence and relative location. On the trains there were always stick on sections of the map on the part going to SFO because they always changed which lines would continue and at what peak times.

It looks hideous, if you ask me. The old map isn't a work of art either, but it's marginally better, with the best version being the one inside stations and trains which has more color and shows other rail lines like Muni Metro, Caltrain, ACE, and Capital Corridor. For a small system like BART, there's no need to go diagrammatic, and considering how spread out the network is, it's helpful to actually keep some level of geographical accuracy.

On the website and at stations, but not inside trains.

The new Bart map is much better- not only does it straighten out the lines but the station names are a bit clearer- not so bunched up.

The Santiago map is quite nice- a good combo of a metro schematic and streets faded in the background to give the rider a geographic location indication.

The Dark Green from Frontenac was discussed at the same time as the #3 Red.

The "added" names are also based on official sources. This map is NOT my "ideal" or anything... just a composite of failed city plans. I added the Train d'Est, as is currently on maps. I also added trains which have been proposed at either end of the Green Line, a while ago.

This is my first map like this. What do you think? I wanted to see a map "like the STM would make it," no offense to everyone else who has made Montreal maps. Needless to say, a lot of what I've shown here is redundant today, or just implausible.

I like it no matter how barmy a network it seems.

What's your "DOCUMENTED" source of the 'Brossard line', coz this is the first I'm learning of such a train route? Besides, I don't see how its using the freight-&-intercity-trafficked 151-year-old Victoria Bridge, which in itself by way of alternating liftbridge sections competes with the international St-Lawrence Seaway underneath, makes it worthy of metro designation. Plus, knowing the rounds of cuckoos that've been running this city over the decades, go figure that it would have never dawned on the planners (on-island, that is) to route it into Bonaventure instead of Lionel-Groulx.

The (quote-unquote) tram-train out of Radisson, the Pious-IX line (Line 7), and the direction-Lafleur extension were ditched way back in the '80s. The northern end of the red line was to veer east along the forthcoming, single-tracked, peak-hour-service only Train de l'Est, north of station Crémazie and without interchange, but this "Line 3"was dropped once the city was granted the 1967 world's fair, plus the idea of the de-Lorimier branch of the Green line was ditched in the late '50s at the planning stages of the infant network.
