That is soooooo cool. God, that makes me miss London (even though I hate the tube at rush hour). Mind the gap!

Via subway? That would be cool.

Q: Where did you go?
A: All over the world.
Q: What did you see?
A: Oh, nothing really. And the Paris station is a long way from New York, so you have to make sure you get a seat.

Ever since the time I successfully breached the CIA HQ restricted area by a few hundred feet and was given a complimentary background check/semi-interrigation by two paramilitary dudes with shotguns longer than my leg--all because of messed up Washington, DC Metro internet directions--I try to miminize my blind reliance on some programer's "best way to get there" directions.

I *wish* I was kidding :)

that nyc subway map is old and incorrect.

Kind of a cool link, until I plugged in my morning commute, just to see how accurate it is.

My 30 minute commute is shown as being 60 minutes.

Maybe they're factoring in breakdowns on the system? Or getting off a few stops early and having a healthy walk?

There's a PalmOS program that does this called Metro. The basic program is fairly small, and you can just download to your device the plug-ins for whichever cities' metro systems you are interested in.

I suspect that this site uses the M├ętrO codebase: certainly, it covers the same stations (and has the same unintuitive cross-street station navigation for the NYC Subway, the one map that needs a severe reworking by volunteer New Yorkers).

Scroll down to the earth's mantle? From the Moscow Metro site - I don't know what it means but it's ..... deep. Thanks for the link, when I was a bored in class I used to draw metro maps for imaginary cities, this takes me back.

Let me add kudos for Metro. I used it extensively in Brussels, Paris and London and it never let me down. In fact I was using it to give directions to others and I hadn't ever been in those cities.

That's what I always said in Paris: the metro was like the subway in a part of Queens that I never visited. Kind of just plugged it right into my mental map of the NYC subway.

Well, to get to Paris you'd take the A train to JFK and then take the 'air subway' to Paris.. easy.. I'd just take a cab to JFK tho, much quicker.

Is there a version of Metro (or anything similar) for EPOC?
