Help Pick Boston's Next Transit Map

The six finalists in an open competition to design Boston's next subway map have been revealed, and the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA) is asking the public to weigh in on the winner.

On the sliding scale between geographical accuracy and pure abstraction, what's the best way to portray a city's myriad rapid transit lines? With the MBTA's "New Perspectives" T Map Challenge you have an opportunity to help decide. 

"In a new survey, the MBTA invites the public to vote for their favorite design among the six finalists chosen by a panel of MBTA representatives, academics, urban planners, and 'mapping aficionados,'" writes Jenny Xie. "The MBTA expects to announce the winner by the end of the month, but makes no guarantee that the crowd favorite will be adopted as the new map. The survey closes on September 20."
