Aaron Bialick shares the new California Rail Map, a map of transit throughout the Golden State. Created by Alfred Twu and his team of cartographers, the map features “both intracity and regional rail lines as well as connecting buses, proving once and for all that it’s possible to get to almost anywhere in the state on public transit,” says Twu.

"The map ties together networks for Amtrak, BART, Muni, VTA, Caltrain, Altamont Commuter Express, Sacramento Regional Transit, San Diego North County Transit District (NCTD), San Diego Trolley, LA Metro, and Metrolink, as well as key bus and ferry connections."

And though the map includes more than 500 destinations reachable by train or connecting bus or ferry, you may want to time your trip with Google Maps before you plan to travel between Palm Springs and Yosemite.
