Working with TransitCenter alongside my colleagues at Route, are are creating maps and interactive tools to to advocate for the Access Denied campaign, an initiative to make the MTA Subway system more accessible to people with mobility issues. Our designs allow viewers to explore how adding full accessibility to 50 subway stations in New York will impact the lives of people in the community.
The maps displays the benefits of future accessibility with proposed stations and encourages users to take political action and advocate for subway accessibility. The interactive map is currently being developed and will display transit-shed accessibility isochrones and enable comparison analysis about increased access to New York City.
We tried several symbols, color and typographic styles.
Legibility and visual hierarchy were top priorities.
