    That subway logo poster is very neat.

    If you click through to this page, each logo is identified by its city.

    My perennial favourite logo—the Montreal Metro—is there. So’s the TransLink “T,” along with so many others. TransLink’s logo looks a lot like Stuttgart’s, albeit with a “T” instead of a “U.”

    The coverage seems fairly thorough. Five of the six subway systems in South Korea are represented, although only one of the three operating companies in Seoul (the oldest and largest one) made the cut.

    Never knew that the “T” became the SkyTrain’s official logo…

    Oh, and the link for “building a foundation for transit in Vancouver” editorial is broken.

    fp252: The T is actually a wayfinding standard intended for our entire transit system, not just SkyTrain. Eventually it’s planned to be on bus stops and the like too!

    The “An editorial from Mike Harcourt and former TransLink chair Dale Parker on building a foundation for transit in Vancouver. “link is broken,
    it should be this: http://www.vancouversun.com/Opportunity+Metro+Vancouver+transit+foundation/3940875/story.html
