About the Map

The New York & New Jersey Subway Map is a comprehensive transit map for the largest US metro area, based on the design of the official New York Subway Map that influences the transit choices of over 2.4 billion annual riders. It integrates subway, light rail, regional rail, and ferry services provided by various transit agencies in the region to show all travel options, similar to maps in other global, peer cities, like Berlin, London, Philadelphia, and Tokyo.

Comprehensive, easy-to-use maps, apps, and journey planning tools influence whether we choose transit, which can reduce stress, ease congestion and pollution, and increase safety for everyone. For more information and resources on building world-class transit user experiences, check out the Transit Standards knowledge base on branding, digital strategy, and graphic standards for public transit.
