I posted the metro map for Lysmere earlier, but I've been updating it Adding several new stations (to make it look better) and a RER type system.

(To give proper credit: a friend of mine made the logo)

What the Copenhagen metro map could look like in the future:


Only two of the lines exist today, the green and the yellow (M1 and M2). The last five stations of the yellow line are going to open this October

Here is my fantasy map for the TTC, will never happen (especially with Transit City and MoveOntario 2021 announced), but I think it is pretty good.

And yes, I came up with this one before I saw the one posted above, which goes to show you how blind the urban planners in this city really are.



Summary of routes (? means possible future expansion)

Yellow: Richmond Hill (Newmarket?)/Downtown/Maple and Canada's Wonderland
Green: Mississauga (Halton/Hamilton?)/Downtown/Markham
Red: Brampton/Downtown/Durham
Blue: Mississauga/Midtown/Scarborough
Purple: Airport/Uptown/Rouge Hill

And back on topic, here is a map of the GTA's current transit system:



And here is the MoveOntario 2020 system announced:

Here is my idea for an underground tram line in Venice.

I'm not crazy, they're really going to build it, but my plan is better

Are those green thingies stations? They're way too close and way too many for a city like Venice, if you ask me.

It is meant to work as a tramway or LR, not as a standard "heavy" subway
Imagine the distance between the tram stops in a classic European city centre... it would be just the same concept, but underwater.

I think it would be useless building a standard Metro in an area so small... the main problem in Venice is that even short trips, on foot or boat, take too much time.
Frequent stops and tram vehicles should provide a fast link inside Venice, and not only from/to the city.
Unluckily what will probably be built is a Metro linking the airport and the Lido (the long south-east island), with only a few stops in the city.
That means, carrying a lot of people inside the city and still having no way to move them in a decent and modern way.
Venice is a living city, people work and study here, get in and out as standard commuters... this is not an historical Disneyland which HAVE to stay absolutely still, closed under a glass.
Actually Venice has never been really still, but -of course- it has never been possible building something new and big inside the historical center. Every new construction has always been developed on what was the urban limit at the time.
Now, since there is no more space, I think we should correct and develop what we have today

Of course in my proposal the stops should be very discreet, not many large holes and exits, just a standard stair and a little elevator, plus an emergency exit hidden inside a building.


Believe me, this town really needs to be alive... too many people think about it as a museum floating on water... and in fact this city is really close to social death.

^ I agree with you on much of what you say about Venice, and that it needs a metro.

Unfortunately, the current plan is not really adequate. It also should connect more of the mainland with Venice (and not have to change trains at the railway station) which would encourage commuting more. Currently, people have tended to move to the mainland as that is where most of the jobs are. It is difficult to travel to the mainland, as they usually have to get a ferry to the station, then a train, and then a bus. But with a proper metro that links the mainland to the islands, there would be less need for people to move.

Likewise, it would be easier to operate businesses on the islands as people would be able to reach them quicker for those already on the mainland.

One problem with your plan though is that generally there should be few tunnels under the islands. The islands already have a stability problem and there is fear that a subway under them could cause some collapses. The current plan is to have the subway under the water entirely, with short tunnels to the island.

Ovem, you have really got a very creative imagination But how can you propose subway lines for cities you have not lived in and for which you are not familiar with traffic flows and bottlenecks?
