Redesigning the Washington Metro Map

Washington Metro system map (thumbnail) The Washington Post on the upcoming redesign of the Washington Metro system map: “More than three decades ago, Lance Wyman designed the Metro map’s iconic interlocking colored lines, which have become the symbol of the transit system for millions of Washington commuters and tourists. Now he’s been hired to give it a makeover.” Via @jpmaps.

Meanwhile, there has been an unofficial competition to design the next map of the Washington Metro. Announcement here, entries here; voting closed last month. (Thanks to DK for the tip.)
