NYC Subway Maps

Posted on November 20th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Rider Strategy

We thought it would be useful to put together a list of the best NYC Subway maps available on the Internet and beyond.  If you have any to add to the list, please post a link in the comments, and we’ll add it to the main body of the post.

Since our last post about NYC Subway maps (back in 2006), there’s been a lot of new ones, and some improvements to the old ones.

  • Gypsy Maps – A Google Maps mashup of the subway lines.  Nicely color coded and information about each station.
  • On NY Turf – Similar to Gypsy Maps, but is actually the original Google Map mashup.  Also includes the PATH trains.  Available in many languages because the people that need the maps most are often from outside the US.
  • MTA Trip Planner – The MTA finally got off their butts and put together a route planner.  They also teamed up with Google to get it done.  They also offer a widget for you to put the planner on your own website.
  • Public Routes – A Hop Stop like site that offers routes and maps for transit systems all over the country, including NYC.
  • Hop Stop – One of the more commercialized subway and transit mapping systems on the web.  Put in your location and destination, and Hop Stop gives you the detailed directions of how to get their including subways, buses, and good old walking.
  • iPhone Map – One of a couple iPhone subway maps.  This is one of the better ones, and it is free.
  • iSubway – Another iPhone subway maps.  A bit more simple.  Just an image you can download and save to your phone.
  • DadNab – An SMS based subway direction service.  Text your location and destination to get directions txt to your phone.
  • Trips123 – Subway and transit maps from around the country, including NYC.  Also has up to date information about on going construction and incidents for each subway line.
