 Wonderland Transit Map and other fictional places

Thinkgeek has a “Wonderland Transit Map” t-shirt, although they do add the caveat that static maps would probably be useless in the amorphous Wonderland.  It got me searching for t-shirts for fictional places that would be equally as useless for navigation.

The World’s Best Subway Maps

Mass transit maps can be a big part of the visual culture of cities.  The more iconic the map, the more likely it is to be turned into a t-shirt, an umbrella, even a shower curtain. Here’s a look at 20 different subway system maps that serve as a window into the culture of their respective cities.

17 citizen-redesigned maps of DC’s Metro.
A couple months ago, the blog Greater Greater Washington challenged readers to create a better map for DC’s subway system, including a new line scheduled to begin opening in 2013. Here are the results. Are there any better than the original?

I like this study about people giving up their seats on the subway to a pregnant woman. Although, sometimes I consider offering my seat because I think a woman is pregnant, but then I don’t because I realize there’s also a possibility she just has a FUPA. And having someone ask if you’re pregnant when you’re not is a total day-ruiner, let me tell you.
