Updated Vancouver Skytrain Map For 2017

Vancouver Skytrain 2017 map by Dave Delisle

The new Evergreen extension is about to open in early 2017, so I updated the Vancouver map (again). Previously this was going to be a unique route carrying the name Evergreen Line, but now it’s just an extension for the existing Millennium Line.

Vancouverites if you’re not aware: beginning October 22nd the Expo line will run from Waterfront to King George OR Production Way University. The Millennium Line will run between VCC Clark and Lougheed Town Centre, meaning it will no longer travel to Waterfront. Once the Evergreen extension opens in early 2017, the Millennium line will extend to Lafarge Lake-Douglas.

Hopefully there won’t be any updates until the rumored UBC line opens several years from now. Also, I feel that Translink should re-open the Olympic Line that ran from Granville island to Cambie Street (during the 2010 Olympics), but with an extension that ends near the Main Street-Science World station, if at all possible.

Updated Vancouver Skytrain Map – Super Mario 3 Style

A high-res poster is available here. Evergreen Line beyond Lougheed station is subject to change*.

Just for fun I thought I’d make a version with some animation. If you need accompanying music look no further.

*Both the Millenium and Evergreen Line could share the line between Lougheed and VCC-Clark, or that section could be exclusive to one of those aforementioned lines. I’m betting that both lines will share the route, with the Evergreen Line only using it during peak times.

Revised Map Of California, Thanks To A Criminal Mastermind

Lex Luthor Map Of California

Many theorize that the San Andreas Fault disaster could have been averted by that Superman fella, but he disappeared the very day a large chunk of California sunk into the Pacific Ocean. Fortunately a large corporation stepped up to rebuild what remained of the state. The lesson: corporations are the real heroes.

If you don’t get the gist I made this map to reflect an alternate reality where Lex Luthor’s scheme (from the first Superman movie, watch the scene here) actually worked. The result is a new California where almost every city is named after the greatest criminal mastermind.

I added a few more cities, decimated a few surviving cities (Fresno and Sacramento), and theorized that a massive barrier reef would form as a result of western California being underwater. Also his plan had called for grabbing a slice of Mexico, which I stayed true to. And yes, I granted Otis his dream city; I imagine Lex would’ve been in a good mood after his plan succeeded to permit Otisburg in the end.
