A Map for a Megaregion
Transit maps frame how people think about getting around in urban areas. A comprehensive map can help people choose transit options that reduce stress, ease congestion and pollution, and increase safety for everyone. Maps in major cities like Berlin, London, Philadelphia, and Tokyo include all rapid transit services, regardless of operator. Here in the New York & New Jersey region, PATH introduced a new map that shows transit connections available at or near each PATH station, including Amtrak, Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, New York City Subway, Newark Light Rail, and New Jersey Transit.
The New York Subway Map influences the transit choices of over 2.4 billion riders, and has a long history of including New Jersey, as well as other transit options that supplement the subway, but the current map doesn’t include all options that serve the city and its immediate environs.
That’s why I created the New York & New Jersey Subway Map.
PATH: Improving Customer Communications for the Subway Connecting New York & New Jersey
After creating the New York & New Jersey Subway Map, I worked with the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey to create PATH Riders Council (PRC), an advisory group for the subway system connecting New York & New Jersey. PRC works with PATH to ensure riders have a voice in system design, operations decision-making, and customer service communications.
Notable accomplishments by PRC and PATH include comprehensive communication about major construction and modernization projects like PATH Forward, train schedule and frequency changes to accommodate growing demand, and an updated system map that shows transit connections available at or near each PATH station. The map helps customers see how all transit options can help them get where they’re going, and moves us closer to a comprehensive map of transit options in the region. I presented the updated PATH map with regional transit connections to the Port Authority Board of Commissioners in 2016 to highlight the successful collaboration between PRC & PATH.
