Metra System Map

I couldn't find a great system map for Metra (Chicago's commuter rail service), so I made one myself!

A closer look at how I did the lines and stations, as well as how I organized everything. I wanted to make this map simple and easy to look at and understand, while also providing important information.


I used the empty space over Lake Michigan to show L, intercity bus, and Amtrak connection info for the stations. Separating it out allowed me to provide more detail on each connection. Icons next to the station names highlight that there is a connection.

I included the South Shore Line, as it is another commuter line into Chicago. The SSL crosses a state and time zone border, so I subtly marked that on the map. I did the same where Metra crosses into Wisconsin.
