Behold the First-Ever Regional Transit Map of New York

For anyone not a fan of the Seattle Seahawks, the best result of this year's Super Bowl might have been the first-ever regional transit map of New York.

Although it didn't work out as well as anyone with a stake in the success of transit systems might have hoped, this year's Super Bowl was meant to lean heavily on the capacity of the New York area’s regional transit system. Hence, “the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl Committee asked designer Yoshiki Waterhouse of Vignelli Associates to merge all the systems onto one diagram,” reports Mark Byrnes. “The result is the closest thing the New York City area has to an all-in-one rapid transit map. The host committee has been passing them out to fans and media and has made it available online.”
