Sometimes, you get a map

Bus Tunnel Map

Way back in February I wrote about the need for a map at the bottom of the bus tunnel to tell you where all those buses zooming through it are going to. I even doodled up a little map as a suggestion for what such a map should look like.

When RIPTA contacted me the other day to let me know they were hanging a map, I was pleased. When I went down to check it out last night, I saw that it was my map they hung. 🙂

Along with the map, they’ve hung a handy schedule.

Now I think I might should get to drawing some more maps.

    It’s a Christmas miracle I tell you!!!!

    How about a map in downtown on Washington Street right next to Lupos that chronicles where all those crazy buses go?

    Or by the mall?

    I think it would be nice to have the maps also show neighborhoods/destinations, and if the bus destinations are the same (42 and 78), it might want to show that.

    How much you get paid to make maps?

    Yeah, seriously. I hope you got some compensation.

    One thing this does point out, though … the tunnel and Thayer are well served by transit …
