Redesigned New York City Subway Map to debut in June 2010

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Concurrent with the subway service revisions planned to take effect June 27, 2010, a new subway map edition will be released that does more than just reflect the changes in service. The new map will still closely resemble the current one, with the following significant design changes:

  • Subway lines shadowed (outlined in gray)
  • Service Guide removed
  • Accessible Stations list removed
  • Bus transfer bubbles compacted
  • Parks will be olive colored
  • Water will be a deeper blue
  • Manhattan will be 30% wider
  • Staten Island will be 50% smaller
  • Other boroughs enlarged
  • Most ferry routes removed

A Bus Map for Jerusalem

Monday, December 14th, 2009

Oren Hirsch created an amazing Jerusalem Bus Map using Google Maps. Check out the Jerusalem Bus Map and/or read all about it in this Jerusalem Post article!

When Oren Hirsch arrived in Israel last summer, he thought he would be spending a year working with the post-college World Union of Jewish Students (WUJS) program, not tackling the capital’s entire transportation system.

And while Hirsch, a 23-year-old with a degree in urban planning from Cornell University, has been actively engaged in WUJS activities since his arrival, it has been an extracurricular activity – creating and posting a comprehensive Jerusalem city bus map online – that has earned him his accolades thus far.

But the key addition to the site came with Hirsch’s arrival in the capital in July and a subsequent recommendation from a friend that he try to create a map of the confusing web of Jerusalem’s myriad bus routes – a step that hasn’t been taken by Egged for over 10 years and one that is sorely needed in a city of more than 760,000 people.
