Weekend work affecting 14 subway lines

By

Spend your weekend designing your own NYC subway map. This site’s been this week’s transit phenomenon, and it’s easy to see why. Correct the wrongs of the NYC subway or build new subway lines faster than the MTA can. It’s quite the addictive site, and you can read all about how it’s inspired by Robert Moses, not exactly a transit booster, in this essay describing the idea. If you’re so inclined, share your results via the Second Ave. Sagas Facebook page. I’d love to see everyone’s ideas.

Anyway, you know the drill: These come from the MTA and may change without notice. Check signs; listen to announcements. Do your thing.

    Love the subway map game/designer thing. I wish it had proper express routing. Also, there is a big need for an undo button, ha.

    There’s several improvements needed in that route designer program. It is a lot of fun, but just some ideas:
    1) I’d like to be able to move the route. It makes some pretty weird curves and such from station to station.
    2) You can’t create a new route name. It gives you some unused numbers and letters, but you can’t add more.
    3) You can’t create a circular route. It seems to refuse to let a route comeback to the station it started at.
    4) You can’t add on to an existing route except at the end of the line. Tried to get an N train from 59th Street Brooklyn to Staten Island- it created a route from Stillwell Avenue instead.
    5) Accidentally clicked on a S line- created a shuttle that has no stations, and goes from Central Park to Staten Island and it won’t go away.

      Yeah, it’s pretty buggy, but the creator of the game is working to improve it and has been taking suggestions and/or bug reports on Reddit/Github.
