VTA (Santa Clara) System and Route Maps, 2000
A complete rebuild and redesign of the Santa Clara County’s VTA system map. We started – essentially from scratch – with aerials of the county, traced/redrew the roads and features, rethinking every process to make it easier to update in the future. In 2013, after a decade or more, it won “Best Public Transit System in North America” at APTA’s Multimodal Operations Conference.
The second part of the project was a new series of printed, folded route maps, found at bus stops and transit hubs. Each hand-held map was intended to represent the functional journey from the beginning to the end of the route.Credit: Reineck and Reineck, Santa Clara VTA
