Comparing Maps — schematic vs. to-scale



Map previews, either of an official subway map or one by cityrailtransit.com, or both, appear on every city page at Metrobits. Where both kinds of map are available (currently 75 cities), they also appear below on this page, which allows to compare the schematic style with the real thing (although not all official maps are schematic).

The 'map' and '©' links below the maps lead to the original versions. Some of the maps include tram, commuter rail, or even bus routes.
