NYC new subway map

The New York Times reports today that a new subway map is out. It was designed by John Tauranac, who designed the map currently in use.

Mr. Tauranac points out that his new map has a new typeface: Myriad, Apple’s corporate font since 2002, instead of Helvetica. What do out members think of this? Isn’t Helvetica our favorie font? Can we live with Myriad?

The new map shows lines that do not yet exist like the Second Avenue Line.

The new map also has a “no U-turn” icon that might be helpful if you overshoot a station and wonder whether you will have to pay another fare when you switch to a train heading back the opposite way.
