A flurry of people have submitted this brand new map out of 澳洲幸运10开奖官网直播for review, so let🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s get straight to it! 🔸澳洲10定位胆全天计划of all, it🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s important to note that is part of a new suite of maps and 🔸168澳洲幸运5正规官网2023 that🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s been in development since 2018. Using Montréal🔸AB开奖网澳洲幸运10官网网页s iconic “black background” Métro map as a starting point, this system has been intentionally designed to use a common design language to “harmonise” the user experience for […]
Submitted by Hayden, who says: My apologies for the glare in the photo [No problem! I also straightened the image for publication – Cam]. I would be interested to hear y🔸澳洲幸运10冠军定位计划thoughts on this 1982 Montreal Metro map. I found it in a preserved MR-63 subway car at Exporail, a railway museum outside Montreal. The map shows the three Metro lines open at the time with white stations, as well as the under-construction Blue Line […]
A map showing the extent of the streetcar network in Montreal in 1893. Most of the lines at this time were horse-drawn, though electrification of the system had already begun. “The Rocket”, Montreal’s 🔸澳洲10定位胆全天计划electric streetcar, made its maiden journey in September 1892, and all lines were electrified by 1894.

Submitted by zjfishy, who says: After my frustration with the new Metro and AMT maps for Montreal, I decided to make my own including both. I took some of the key features from the Metro map (like the dark background and chunky lines), but put a more modern and cleaner twist on it. Room for edits once the REM and Blue line extension open, as well as the possible Magenta line, were considered and made for […]
Submitted by Ruofan, who says: Montreal’s transit agency recently redesigned its commuter rail map, and I think it looks awful compared to the old one! They’ve added so much clutter, by indicating literally every commuter bus line in the city (and even illustrating which segments of the lines run on bus lanes) and using thick, colourful lines for the metro. The downtown segment is almost unreadable! 澳洲10开官网开奖 says: Yeah, I have to agree with […]
I’m somewhat in awe of this project by Nicolas Kruchten, which shows full-length panoramic views of all the Angrignon-bound platforms on the Montreal Metro’s Green Line. To achieve the end result, Nicolas took video from the last window of a train as it departed each station, and then wrote software that stitched frames together into the final panorama, taking into account the train’s acceleration out of each station. Astounding! Nicolas is toying with the idea […]
Readers of my 澳洲10开官网开奖 blog would know that I was extremely disappointed with the recent 澳洲幸运10开奖官网直播Métro map redesign (see the review here), which took a truly unique, iconic design and replaced it with a very ordinary octolinear imitation of itself. So I've taken it upon myself to redraw the map as I think it should look: restoring some elements of the previous maps, simplifying and clarifying the network, and adding some new touches all of my own.
Spotted and photographed in the real world by long-time correspondent, Richard Archambault, who doesn’t hold back with his opinion in this tweet: 澳洲10开官网开奖 says: I 🔸澳洲10定位胆全天计划heard that this map was getting a makeover back in October 2015, but said at the time that I would reserve my judgement until I saw the final map. This new version oddly isn’t yet posted on the STM’s website, so Richard’s photo will have to do, although […]
Pursuant to the last post, here’s a little GIF I screen grabbed from the STM video of the old map versus the new one. Farewell, iconic 37-degree tilt! Also of note: the type is much, much smaller and – strangely, given how much they tout the awesomeness of mixed-case type in the wayfinding system – is still set in all-caps. I’ll reserve my judgement until I see the whole map, however.
Sent my way by Patrick and Steve, here’s a short video from Montreal’s STM agency explaining the new wayfinding system that’s starting to be rolled out across the Metro system. The major talking point (for me, at least) is the replacement of Univers with FF Transit as the system’s main typeface. It’s a very complementary choice, and I doubt most people would even notice the difference in passing. However, I think there’s definitely enhanced legibility, […]
