Last week I was away in Paris, and every time I got onto the Metro I thought about how great it would be if Philadelphia had that kind of transit coverage: nobody more than a few blocks from a stop, most major destinations no more than one train-change away, easy access, etc. This is not to say that the Metro is perfect (I missed the air-conditioning of SEPTA's cars greatly), but merely an excellent standard of integration into the fabric of a city.
Anyway, that made me super-primed for this fantasy SEPTA map
, which apparently incorporates just about every expansion and tweak suggestion made in the last century and achieves almost the kind of coverage I'd been imagining myself. I'd especially like to see an extension into South Philly, but really it all looks great. Where do I sign up?(via Philadelphia Will Do)
