This one is disgusting. Couldn't they have designed something really decent?

That's pretty interesting news, maybe our map designers will be interested:

2) Depicting basic information about others means of public transport with transfer points
3) Depicting necessary information about objects for physically chalennged people
4) Creating possibilities of orienting in the Metro for non-Russian speakers
5) Building the map the way it would be possible to change the amount of information on the map depending on the type of scheme
6) Pilot designing of some elements of the future navigation system for Moscow public transport
...
Things to be included into the basic scheme:

Wow, that's an interesting approach. Is the map that wins the contest meant to be the official replacement of the current official map?

Interesting, but it would take a long time to figure out which station is step-free or not. Also, does others means of public transport mean buses as well, in addition to railways?

:Step-free stations are known and written in an additional document, as well as transfer points to buses, railways and aeroexpresses.

Whoever wants to design a new map and send it in, please (please!) keep the Circle Line circular!

Anti-aliasing has been around for at least the last ten years or so, you know...

Although not the new official metro map for the Moscow metro I would like to share my contribution for the metro map competition. I, unfortunately, did not make it to the final three, on which the public can vote in order to become the new official Moscow metro scheme. Nevertheless, I still wanted that my design could be viewed by the public.

Due to the limited time available the map came not completely out as wished, nevertheless in mine opinion good enough to compete, because a rework would have taken to long. Some of the displayed information was obliged by the competition rules, for example the station names of intercity stations, as well as the bus lines (including the numbers) of the airport feeder lines and express lines (901-904).

The chosen font is Futura rounded, Futura was the font of the 1980 Moscow Olympics, and the rounded appearance stands for the boldness of Russia and Moscow.

I am very curious to your opinions.

Definitely the first one

The mixture of the perfect circle and the vertical / horizontal / 45 degree lines jars... It's poor design.

The first one which is purely vertical / horizontal / 45 degree lines is much more aesthetically pleasing to my eye.

I don't agree.

Number 3 for me!

A metro circle line is something special in every city that has such a remarkable line, even more so in Moscow, where it is indeed almost circular geographically, and one of the most important lines.

A circle is the most perfect of all geometrical shapes and it combines very well with the straight lines and 45° angles, making up for a nice contrast that adds style to the map.

Forcing such a circle line into 45° angles, in my olpinion, is nerdy and inept.

Number 2's circular transfer structures look a little awkward.
