Post 800!

Otazabi,nice idea,but I have suggestions.

For the lines,use Google Maps.Then,copy-paste it(PrtSc) on any drawing applicaation,remove excess information,then,put the stations.

For the system,I suggest that the orange line should(and must) reach the airport.It was a close call.Add a line around the city center(my usual plannings),to the port(I see!) and important bridges(Stone Bridge,Southern Bridge,etc.).

Challenge for everyone:Quote my Zaragoza jokes if you think I am still working on my Zaragoza map.

Thanks for the suggestions It would be a good idea to extend the orange line to the airport, I did not realize.
A S-Bahn system would be good too, but I think Riga has it already

Delicias-a station on the RENFE in Zaragoza.
Delicias is the name of the populous neighborhood South of the station. It gave its name to the station that replaced the old Portillo station.

Goya Station.Goya is a chocolate brand in the Philippines.
Francisco de Goya, after who is named the avenue and by extension the station, was a painter from Fuendetodos, a town on the province. He lived in the 18th and 19th centuries, and his paintings have named a ton of streets in Parque Goya, the Northernmost neighborhood of Zaragoza (I jokingly say it is part of Huesca). BTW, the Goya station is for commuter and regional trains only, long distance and high speed services only stop at the aforementioned Delicias station.

LOL! Well, that was the site of the 2008 International Exposition. It is currently being rebuilt, but with current economic situation, you know. I call it jokingly the Expo remnants.

I don't think so. I believe one have to know the city before drawing a fantasy transit map.

HA! You have been fooled by my signature

I've been busy lately, so no maps from me. But I have drawn an entire bus system for a fictional city.

1.HARTride2012:That was serious.The three edits?Was forgetful.The your mother "controversy",what was wrong with that CNGL?
2.Since I am posting from my iPad,I am going to make a map.
3.BTW,after the Manila RapTra(Rapid Transit),I'll make the Football/Voetbal/Fußball/Calcio/Fútbol Metro.Everything related to football.Lines would be in circles like the Glasgow system.
