New York City Public Transport Routes

Posted by JaLooNz on 25 May 2013 in English (English)

One of my side projects for OpenStreetMap mapping is the mapping of public transport routes in the New York region. This consists of New York City Subways (Map), Manhattan Bus Routes (Map), several Queens Bus Routes (Map) and Staten Island Bus Routes (Map). You can now view most local bus routes on the transport map and quickly locate nearby routes without navigation the maze of most local transit authorities websites.

I must also congratulate Xoan Manuel on his work on most of the Queens Bus Routes and Brooklyn Bus Routes (See Map).

The remaining items on the lists are several cross-town services, Bronx services and transportation on the New Jersey side. On a side note, an alternative rendering of the public transport map can be found at OpenPTMap, where subway lines are also rendered properly.

I thank you for your kind words and thank you and everyone else for the efforts that it made possible for me to concentrate my efforts.

The only response I have is that I believe that a noble effort such as this deserves a noble (I hope!) effort to advance it further. I hope to continue the effort of those who are working and have worked on this map to make it the great tool it already is and grow and nurture it into something useful to anyone who needs it. I encourage anyone else who is able and is willing to add to the efforts to do so.

FYI, completed the Bronx local bus routes. I believe that completes the NYC local bus routes. I guess the next step is the express bus routes in all boroughs, Nassau and Westchester county buses. Let's see.
