For locals, public transit often feels like more of a dredge than a vibrant marker of urban culture, but designer Peter Dvorak's 'Transit Oriented' project shows that cities' transit systems are as unique as the cities themselves.
Transit Oriented is a design project that delves into public transportation around the world. The newest addition, 'City Transit,' gets granular about the transit options in 24 North American metropolitan areas. The series of posters contain simplified graphics of all the public transportation vehicles available in each city — including trains, subways, buses, streetcars, ferries, and anything else that makes up the public transport network.
Transit aficionados can order prints of the posters through Dvorak's website, which also includes a complete identifying guide for the specific vehicles on each city's poster.
