Like in Moscow, in Boston was held contest for best design of Metro Map. It was won by Russian (Georgia-born) designer Mikhail (Michael) Kvrivishvili who lives in Moscow and works at Artemy Lebedev's Studio. His project got more than 6000 of the 17000 votes. This year he also participated in the contest for best design for Moscow Metro Map, but his project was rejected.

Here are works of other pretenders:

Here is a great map of Boston's RT network by Cameron Booth. He wasn't willing to take part in the contest because MBTA takes full ownership of the submissions, with no pay.

However, as I previously wrote, it's need to realize that victory in such contests is a good advertising of own works. For example, I absolutely sure that nobody in Boston heard about Mikhail Kvrivishvili before this contest and only few specialists in Moscow knew about him. So, now his name became much more famous. I guess this guy can expect more orders in near future. More orders - more money.

So, victories in such contests can indirectly increase profit of winners.

Since something Changed since 2007 (very few things...), here's the actual Rome (Roma) subway map:



Actually, the yellow line is just an old tram line, and the green one is more like a urban railway. Light blue is a good mix between urban railway and metro line (metro trains, metro-like stations but 15 minutes between one and another vehicle...).

Planned:



As you can see, two more lines should be added: Line C (Under costruction, open in 2014 first branch) and Line D (stopped for now).

PS = sorry for the size of pics...
