The second American city (after San Francisco) to get the geeky map treatment, Washington’s Metro is given the Super Mario 3 treatment. The above version includes the new Silver Line, slated to open this year. Actually this is only the first phase of the Silver line, which is comprised of only 5 stops.

However I did make another version which has the second phase of the Silver Line, which has 6 additional stops. It’s not expected to be completed until 2018. Here it is:

The number of stations (and their names) might change between now and 2018, so while this seems wildly optimistic, I’m just happy to get it out of the way for now. I can revisit it later if needed.

It is by far my busiest map to date; looks like Washington has quite the sprawling rapid transit system. According to Wikipedia it is the second-busiest in North America (after New York).

There are not too many cities left that I can fit into this style; Atlanta, St. Louis, and maybe Chicago are candidates for future maps. We’ll see.

  1. What tools did you use to make this? I’d love to do a Manhattan subway map. Think it’s impossible?

  2. Please do Toronto!!!! You would have so many buyers!

  3. Is New York not possible? Too busy?

    I’d buy one of NYC. Nostalgia!

  4. This is going in my cube at work. Makes me homesick for sure! Tampa, get some trains will ya!?

  5. Do St. Louis please!

  6. Minneapolis please!!! This is GREAT!

  7. Portland! I don’t think that would be too crazy. This is so great.

  8. Any chance you would do Los Angeles MTA’s system? Both the current system and the one slated to be done at the End of Measure R?

    Is there any way to purchase just a high-rez original image of this DC map? It’s amazing, and I wanna put it on a custom shower curtain!

  10. Philadelphia has a subway and an elevated subway it also connects to a Southern NJ line. It would work as a Super Mario map.

  11. This is so awesome…ordered a big one to frame and put in my cave!

  12. Are you sure Boston wouldn’t work in this? Sure, the Green Line’s probably too complex once it splits outbound, but most official maps simplify that anyway.
