I've been working on a new BART map, that's more clean, crisp, and more metro system map like than looking like a map generated in Google maps.

And mine:

I like mine because the lines are more...outlined and straight, and shows connections to other transit agencies. It's hard to see, but the little 'key' box describes off-peak service hours for the dashed red and dashed yellow lines (Red 4AM-8PM, Yellow after 8 PM on weekdays) Also, bolded, larger font stations are designated as official transfer stations.

But yeah. Opinions?

they almost had the kind of maps that you drew for the BCT system with their flyer maps. But this is really helpful. EVer thought about writing your name on it and submitting your work?

Meh, it's really not that great. Not to mention, the font I used on the Station labels isn't allowed for commercial use by the author :P

So oh well. Maybe they'll spruce it up, they're modifying their schedule soon
