Lehigh Valley Metro

lehigh valley rail

Insert Billy Joel reference here.

In an attempt to remember why I liked drawing transit maps in the first place, I asked the internet to pick a mid-size city for me to crayon a metro network for. The hivemind picked Allentown, and this is the result.

The network is a Copenhagen-style light metro, almost entirely underground because in my experience most of the rivers in the Lehigh Valley run through veritable gorges. So, in essence, too expensive to be worth it. But! The exercise got the juices flowing again, so in that respect it was a success.

I wanna do this again with a different city, so there will be a fresh poll on Twitter tomorrow afternoon.
