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.
