Rapid transit geekery

Via Stephen Karlson, I found a site that will let you display all the urban rapid transit systems you have used in the world:

Got at!

With a little source hacking, I added the Munich U logo (which is the same as the Berlin U logo anyway).

You’ve never used the model of inefficiency that is MATA?


Surprisingly, no, not even the downtown trolley, although I have ridden the little monorail over to Mud Island (does that even work any more?).

Besides… they didn’t have the logo ☺

I don’t know if the monorail works. I’ve only ridden the trolley 3–4 times. It is, though, the best value in town b/c you see some great views for a buck.

They should change their logo to a huge bus with the connector thing in the middle…with two passengers on board.


They’ve got Dallas Area Rapid Transit, but no Fort Worth, Houston, or Corpus Christi.


It appears as though the site managers are adding logos as they turn up (or as sufficient rivet-counters whinge?) Denver is now available, and it’s likely that some of those other Empty Quarter trolley lines will become available, as will some of the British services that commenters elsewhere have noted are not yet up.
