The subway (or the “T”, if you’re in Boston) is one of my favorite things about the city but, well before I lived here, I had a certain fascination with city transit systems and subway maps. To this day, when I’m waiting for a train, I find myself being drawn to the line maps that are posted at each station. It might seem odd to wax poetic about something so utilitarian, but there is such a graphical beauty to subway line maps, and I was delighted to find LinePosters, a shop that carries line drawings of city transit systems from around the world.
Do you have a particular system that you’d love to explore? Though it looks somewhat intimidating, I would be so happy to explore Tokyo’s system. Maybe one day!
