In major cities across the globe, subway maps have always reminded me of tangled webs of colour and confusion. That said, figuring them out is one of my favourite challenges.

Two of my favourites are San Franciso’s map with it’s widespread branches stretching out in four directions and Paris’ super dense map which makes you wonder if Parisians ever come up for air.
