Here’s a site which I sourced a few of the pictures. There’s some good info on it too.

Definitely related to my usual topic of discussion, and a huge part of wayfinding and corporate identity for each Metro system. Notice how instantly recognisable many of these logos are? See also this previous post regarding Metro logos from May 2012.

As you probably know, Transit Maps is a blog about… well… transit maps. If photos of transit infrastructure and trains are more your thing, then I definitely recommend the Moving Life (transitblogging) Tumblr. Click on the photo or here to take a look!

Westbound-Eastbound

A fun pair of photos sent to the @transitmap Twitter account by @alphabetbyrne in Glasgow, Scotland. You can send suggestions or requests to me either on Twitter or via the Ask function here on Tumblr.

Where Are We Going?

I’ll never get tired of photos of people studying transit maps, especially when they seem to be totally dumbfounded by it all.

When your system is as big and complex as Berlin’s, you need a big-ass map on the wall to show you where you’re going.
