Transit Maps

hey kids. dave asked me to post some stuff over here. so in the spirit of getting this thing going, a few transit maps i've put together over the last year or so. should be relatively self-explanatory (and large--sorry dialups).

I've always really enjoyed your transit maps, in fact I have one as part of a collage in my subway themed bathroom.

I gotta get cracking learning how to use photoshop.

dono, are all those conceptual? are there any actual plans for commuter/light rail in the works for richmond? heavy is probably out of the question anyway... that would be quite a comprehensive system.

VRE wants to extend commuter rail from DC/Fredericksburg to Richmond, along the line that goes north to Ashland, and there is also a streetcar plan floating around that would represent the Main St Station to Harrison St segment of my Purple Line... that's probably about it in the near future, though I think in the distant future, all five of the bold commuter rail lines and elements of the light rail lines in the city could become reality. The maps are all of my conception.

All right. I'm game. Some of these maps are suppose to look
good and others are bare bones.

This is an export of a lage map I made for my wall showing all
the transit routes serving my local Metro station.


This is a temporary working diagramatic map of my own transit fantasy. About time I get finish that. Been sitting around for a year.


This is the officially proposed system Richmond is studying. Blue
is LRT, teal is commuter rail. Not all these lines would be built
(for instance, LRT and commuter rail lines along similar corridors
are alternate options).


The existing Baltimore system


The existing Denver system


Denver's future system


This is a little different. How about a screencap of ArcMap?
Commuter rail in DC. Solid lines are existing. Dashed are fantasy.
