What’s a frequent transit map?

Most transit system maps show every bus line with equal weight, so potential riders can’t tell if a route comes every 2 minutes or every 2 hours. Obviously that information makes a huge difference.

Frequent transit maps are fabulous tools that highlight buses and trains that come at least every 15 minutes, all day (not just at rush hour). The point is to help people easily identify the most convenient routes.

Contribute to the list

The list is a work in progress. Not every city has a map, and there are probably maps I don’t know about.

If you know of a frequent transit map that isn’t shown here, please let me know via email.

To qualify, a map must show routes that come at least every 15 minutes off-peak on weekdays. I’ll accept maps that show all routes if they at least highlight the frequent ones, but that 15 minute cut-off is a hard line. 20 minute bus headways is not frequent.

Thanks for your help!
