[via stridingcloud and xophylia] This is what the subway map of Accordion City actually looks like (click to see a larger image):
A good chunk of the city — particularly the north end — is underserved by it. Here’s what it probably should look like (once again, click to see a larger image):
Xophylia has also created a scalable PDF version of the dream subway map for you fantasy cartographers to study in detail.
The gold-coloured line’s east-west stretch would be nice, but it doesn’t serve a very population-dense area. If I had to pick one line from the dream map to add to the subway, I’d add the Sheppard-Etobicoke line (the purple line that spans the north end of the city). That entire line would serve a population-dense part of town bristling with high-rises that’s currently served by buses. It would also give us what a proper city has: an airport subway stop!
