    Map A Greater Washington Metro

    This is a map I worked out over the past week, of a Washington Metro that was built to a much larger budget, where there's a ring line planned from the start and each line has a separate subway corridor downtown.

    Hello:

    My wife and I use the Red line a great deal. Especially when we go to a CAPS game. I would love to see the purple line built and the circle line would cut down on delays. Especially when they are single tracking. The map looks good.

    Nice one. Interestingly enough, Washington D.C.'s subway system will look like Moscow's !

    This would've saved me about 20 minutes a day each way if it'd been the way things were built when I was taking metro.

    Hello:
    This past weekend my wife and I were driving and saw the newly opened stations of the D.C. Silver line. It is a start. I still love the map.

    They've actually opened the Silver Line now?
