Transparent RouteMap / Subway Route Map

Transparent RouteMap
Transparent RouteMap

For the newcomers to a city, it is not easy to be able to read and understand the tiny route map with several routes and station names packed on it.

Unfamiliar station names and several routes crisscrossing each other make it almost impossible for them to find their destinations.

In order to solve this difficulty, our new route map tries to provide each route on separate transparent sheets.

Since each route is marked on a separate sheet, sightseers, if necessary, can look at each map and find their destinations, not hindered by other routes. And when they want to identify transfer stations, they can just overlap the sheets.
