Fun With Maps: BART Draws Some Straighter Lines

New, 10 comments

You might have missed it— we certainly did— but BART has a new system map that throws away some geographical accuracy in favor of readability and beautiful, beautiful straight lines. Behold! The Oakland-area clusterf**k is now slightly more readable, though a southbound trip into the Mission now appears to travel as the crow flies. As Burrito Justice admonishes: the "new BART map disrespects history." (Compare to the vigilante mapmaker's version last year.)
