Typographic Transit Maps

August 24, 2011

Christopher Jobson

I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)

Global Tube Map

(click for detail)

Today I was reading over on Flavorwire about Mark Noad’s proposed redesign of the London Underground Tube. I found a link on his blog to this epic ongoing thread about the London Underground that began back in 2002 on Edward Tufte’s website where he posted this fun global tube map created by Alan Foale in 2002 for The Times. It’s like the Pangea approach to public transportation. I love that two of my favorite cities, Chicago and Prague, happen to be on the same line only 9 stops apart. Oooh I hope there’s a bar car.

I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)
