Moving on Many Metros

So over at Metros From the World there is a field of transit company logos from cities all over this great globe of ours. You can select the ones you’re ridden and make a cute little badge for your blog or whatever, but what seems to be the most interesting part is the page that ranks how many times people have chosen each subway system. Not suprisingly, New York’s MTA is at the top of the list (marked 5166 times as of this posting) followed by London (5026), Washington (3960), Boston (3787), then San Francisco (3228). Toronto, at 1820, is 12th on the list.
But my oh my, the TTC logo sure is different from the rest of them. Most are one letter in a coloured shape of some sort, or involve arrows. The TTC’s looks so ornate and cute by comparison.
