It also has one of the best maps in the world. It is clear but detailed and intricate, even marking the city's notable sights and green spaces. Some might argue that diagonal lines would be welcome here.
On the contrary, the right angles here make the map more spacious, making it easier to pick out stations and giving the map its unique appeal. U-bends welcome. This map is hard to fault, its shining feature is the particularly clear interchange symbol. It might be easy to lay out a clear metro map when there are only 22 stations to mark, but the Tbilisi Metro still deserves credit for doing so in such a satisfying fashion. As it stands, it is clear enough. However, the under-construction Line 6 brown starts to show that those free-weaving lines are liable to clutter.

The colour-coded interchange symbols are a joy as is the practice of greying out stations that are closed see top-right. Shocking stuff. The density of stations doomed this map before it was ever designed. Here you have half of a good metro map, the other half is a mess of similarly coloured lines passing along routes that merge and diverge seemingly at whim. A simple enough map to read.

Note that around half of this system is under construction as marked by the striped lines. This map gets a lot of stick for being confusing but it is after all the metro system with the most stations in the world. And anyway, its not exactly hard to follow when the entire city is laid out in a grid. This map might be the one that most closely corresponds to the real world layout of the system. The bicycle symbols marking stations that are covered by Rio's bike share scheme are a welcome feature.
Including the tram network could easily have led to a muddle, but this map is saved by clever colour-coding and line density. Clear and simple, though with only one intersection to deal with, it would be a feat for it not to be clear and simple. Is the only metro to link two stations with a ferry crossing? Clear enough, though one dreads to imagine the state of those stations in the central loop at rush hour on a Friday. All the different branches on the same line make it difficult to understand but satisfying to look at.
The original. Best viewed without the zoning map underlay, which ruins what is otherwise a heroic attempt at making sense of a sprawling and uneven system. Spritely guitar-centric indie pop from this New Orleans musician recalls the glory days of Darla and Kindercore Records.
