Mark,

Very nice map, love it. Do you have a higher-res version of it by any chance?

I love that map. Yet, after reading it for a few minutes, I am not sure I would use it as a cover for a book on real transit maps.

The links between the cities are fictional, so it is really nothing more than eye candy (art would make a statement - not sure I get a statement from this) and this map is not based on reality while the contents of the book are. Maybe a collage of transit maps overtime and around the world would be more contextually fitting.

Still though, very nice map.

Cool. Now I can plan my round-the-world trip using only one token!

The more you study it, the odder some of the topology becomes. Dallas in between Jacksonville and Atlanta? And only Northwest Airlines would put Minneapolis between Chicago and Detroit.
