Wow! Quite some ambitious network! Are those plans purely fictional, or are they (loosely) based on past and/or existing plans?

Red Line exist for the 80%
Dark Green light exist for more than the 80%
Yellow Line exist for more than an half part (and another some km are under construction).

ALL the Blue Lines exists. all.

the Light Blue Line and the Purple Line are both Approved. the Purple Line will be under construction in the next months.

the Orange Line exsist for the north-west part as a branch of the Red Line, as the Light Green Light exists as a branch of the Green Line.

only 2 lines are...dreams.
the Magenta Circular Line and the Brown Line.
and also a small part of one of the branch of the Blue S Line doesen't exists today. but there is a project.

I've never seen that fantasy map of Montréal before. I don't think the metro will make it to Pointe-Claire, but it's interesting...

Austin:


Fast light rail throughout the city with stations with large parking lots. Maglev lines from downtown and suburbs to the airport.

Here's another map of Rotterdam, my own schematical interpretation with a heavy zoom in on the city centre. Gray lines are the mainline rail, most of which will eventually be like a metro with more stations and lightrail material.



It still needs some work but compare it to the geographical map: it's already quite accurate and rather truthful.

I once made a New York Future map. All the future lines are actually in the planning stage, like the Fulton St Transit Center, the new South Ferry and Whitehall complex, the #7 extension and of course the creme de la creme, the piece de resistance (why do we always resort to French for these sort of superlatives?): the Second Avenue Subway:

I don't understand the German system. What is a UBahn and SBahn?
Are they Metros, LRT, CommuterRail, Monorai, SkyTrain, or none of the above?
Please explain.

Dead link. Let me explain the difference:

U-bahn: usually metro, underground (that's what the U stands for), but als above ground (in fact, Berlin's first U-bahn was above ground). With the introduction of the so-called Stadtbahn systems in the 60's and 70's in West-German cities, U-bahn also stands for underground sections of tram lines. So the definition has broadened a little.
S-bahn: commuter trains. They either form a separate system (like Berlin's system), or run mainly alongside long-distance services via the rail tracks into the city's centre. The S stands for 'schnell' (fast) I once learned, which is of course meant to indicate the difference in speed between 'slower' metro's and trams and the faster commuter services.
Got it?

^ Also of note, the S-bahn service is generally closer to the suburban side of commuter rail. i.e. it mainly serves the nearer parts of the core city. There is also another level of commuter rail which is sometimes refered to as R-bahn (although generally known as Regional Bahn). This serves longer distances and often connecting two seperate metropolitan area's but within a metro area they offer commuter services faster than the S-bahn (ideal for longer distances)

The other difference between S-bahn and R-bahn is that S-bahns often pass through the city center underground or elevated and in the central core almost operate like a metro service. This makes them very similar to the RER in paris. Where as the R-bahns usually terminate at the city's main station.

Interesting, thanks for the info.
Sounds like SBahn is like Toronto's GO Trains.

Probably is quite similar.

Do Go Trains pass through the city and continue the otherside? That is a key point usually with S-bahns as it allows cross-city transit as well as the usual spoke & wheel.
