MBTA launches transit map design contest
BOSTON (WHDH) -- The T is launching a contest to make a better map of their transit system.
They’re challenging participants to try re-designing at different levels -- from one bus line to the whole city.
The contest is called the 'New Perspectives T Map Challenge' and encourages participants to design a better MBTA map. Winners will be announced at an MBTA hosted event during National Transportation Week, May 12-18.
Despite the contest, the T is not planning on actually replacing maps in their stations.
A spokesperson for the T said the cash-strapped agency can't afford to replace any of the maps.
