Rockland Bus Map Official Release


Recommended Posts

Why does the look strikingly simliar to the (MTA) bus map?

 

By design. Some fonts are the same, no colors were copied but they were selected to be similar, etc.

Did you design it?

 

If Westchester County Bee-Line follows MTA Design, it properly going to be W.

 

Yes. Kriston Lewis is working on the W one due out by mid July. I'm not sure if it'll include the back side.

Amtrak7, how did you make it look like MTA's Map PDF?

 

Streets are white and background is tan. Just taking every design element possible without outright copying.

Nice!

 

It will. You didn't get my email?

 

I got the email that said this:

 

Because of school, the Westchester map has been delayed a bit. It will be done by the end of June, early July at the latest.

 

It had no mention of the back side, and that was the last I got from you.

Amtrak7, Kristen Lewis.

I was wondering maybe you could create Express Bus version of Manhattan Bus Map that include Bee-Line BxM4C and Atlantic X23/X24.

 

I tried, but gave up after creating the Bronx routes and part of Downtown.

 

It's simply too dense.

Looks like I won't be able to put this in the PDF map, it's simply too complex in an area with many routes already. Maybe an inset map.

For a second I'm like.. Finally a better much more scaled down map from TOR.. Until I see you made it..

 

Still pretty good tho!

 

Is the map with streets a template? Because thats a lot of work!

The base map is a template, but everything else is drawn in. The base map also includes lots of extraneous stuff that had to be deleted manually (bike paths, county boundaries, commercial building outlines, land use, etc.)

 

Until I see you made it..

 

Is something different if I make a map than if someone else does? Are you trying to imply something here?
