The New York & New Jersey Subway Map is a comprehensive transit map for the largest US metro area. It depicts all transit options, similar to maps in other global, peer cities, like Berlin, London, Philadelphia, and Tokyo. It is based on the design of the official New York City Subway Map that influences the transit choices of over 2.4 billion annual riders.
What’s on the Map?
- Hudson-Bergen Light Rail – New Jersey: solid yellow lines.
- New York City Subway – New York: lines in multiple colors.
- New York Waterway Ferries – New York & New Jersey: light blue dotted lines.
- Port Authority Trans-Hudson (PATH) – New York & New Jersey: bright blue lines.
- Staten Island Ferry – New York: light blue dotted line.
- Staten Island Railway New York (inset): solid, navy blue lines.
New England Transit Map
The New England Transit Map is a comprehensive diagram of current and future rail and bus rapid transit routes throughout the six-state region. It shows how transit lines operated by multiple agencies can work as a comprehensive system, building on the regional approach I began with the New York & New Jersey Subway Map.
