How to improve BART signage

Posted by Arcane Gazebo at September 19, 2006 2:55 PM

Via 43 Folders, here's a proposal for improving the signage in Bay Area public transit stations (i.e. BART and Muni). It mentions two issues I had noticed before: Why aren't the BART lines referred to by color, despite being color-coded on the map? (My first experience with a subway system was DC's Metro, which has color designations.) And, why aren't there any signs to the 16th St Mission station? (Obviously it's at the intersection of 16th and Mission, but one at least needs to know which direction Mission St is...)

That website has a number of other interesting-looking articles on SF urban design.

I should pass along that website to one of my former students, who unfortunately has decided on a career in urban planning instead of mathematics.
