well, here it is.
First prototype of my 11th version of Mexico City subway&massive transport vision.
Having some problems for uploading. The complete image is too big, so please follow this link:

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images...masterken.jpg/





Samples:





Brief and general overview of composition premises:

1 - Fully integrated massive systems.
Currently, almost each massive transit system in Mexico City and its conurbation areas follows its own policy and its own demand solutions for its local area of service. Along with this new integrated policy, governments within the full urban area (Federal District, State of Mexico, Hidalgo State) should evaluate the possibility for third-party partakers to run, build and administrate some of the services. Always maintaing the integrated vision.

2 - Fully integrated region-administrative network.
Currently, Mexico City subway can't surpass the Distrito Federal geographical administrative limit (with some exceptions), since the STC (Sistema de Transporte Colectivo, decentralized entity that runs subway service and construction) depends directly on the Federal District government, not in a higher-level of administration (federal). In the same way, emerging State of Mexico massive transports may stop its way into city center when touching Federal Distric limits.

3 - Full urban area coverage.
Divided into several massive transport types (subway, commuter rail, ligh trail, BRT, etc.), this network proposal adequate each transport type to its best geographical pattern:
National Rail: Links Mexico cities (not shown here)
Commuter Rail: Links Center Mexico Valley cities (Mexico City, Puebla, Toluca, Pachuca, Cuernavaca) and localities within.
Subway (tyre & steel): Links the general inner Mexico City urban area
Monorail: Links strategic inner Mexico City urban areas.
Ligh Rail: Links sub-urban localities with the main inner-city subway system
Cable Car: Links sub-urban localities where rail systems can't access with the main inner-city subway sistem
Tram: Links strategic areas in the Mexico City urban core (not shown here)
BRT corridors: Forms an orthogonal network in the inner city to link the majority of neighborhoods. This final step in the network layer virtually makes any place served by a massive public transport.
4 - Mid and Sub-urban services are coloured and disposed in a way that each large suburban area located in a certain coordinate around the main city is identifiable by its trunk suburban line and their branch light rail services. All of them coloured in a similar hue. That's when you identify clear service areas, like the "Red Zone" in the Northwest, the "Blue zone" in the northeast, the "Green Zone" in southeast.


And basically, that's it.
I will be uploading the Sub-urban map in the next days, hopefully.


I would like to know if there is a way to show here a resized version of the complete image, but again completed in full resolution in the hyperlink when clicked on it. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it.

I found a work I had done about 2 years ago.

It's not complete yet, but the lines are almost drawn ( I'm just waiting for a new and more powerful computer so that I can work better on the map to improve it )

This is the city of Hyundao. In the map you can see subway, commuter lines and private commuter lines.

Never heard of that Welsh town? It actually exists. I also suggest one hill in New Zealand, called Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu .

When I saw the preview I was sure it was going to be massive, but that is just insane! Including subway, light rail, monorail and cable lift lines, I count 57 lines! I like the light rail that runs from Visitación to Tultitlan and then to Granjas de Cope, since it's numbered 35.

It is because of Zaragoza's bus route 35, which is my favourite one. It runs North-Southwest, and it continued further to the West before it was split onto current 35 and 53. And then it was rerouted because of the tram. Incidentally, on my Zaragoza tram plan I routed one line onto the section North of the Ebro river.

Something I'm still working on. Lots of stations between interchanges are missing!

A fantasy map of Glasgow based on real Scottish Government recommendations and past proposals. Only the tramlines and sections of track between West St. and Cathedral, and Hospital and Jordanhill, are new. Both sections of track are however, deep bored tunnel. This is essentially a reorganisation of existing lines, with three new cross-clyde routes introduced to divert trains from the terminal stations, while linking Central with Queen St.
