Metro Route 48 Strip Map

Mock up of an in-coach strip (10 x 36 in) map for the 48. This one does not show other streets like my 255 map. I had one partially finished that showed streets and water and landmarks but gave up on it because I didn’t like the way it turned out.
I can’t say that I’m satisfied with this one. Perhaps I tried to put in too much info on to the map. The text size is large, around 1.5 to 2 times larger than used on the London and Paris strip maps I’m using as a base.
Oh, I know it’s kind of a joke to put the travel times on the map for this route. Just yesterday, the 48 I was in got passed by another one around Greenwood and one guy in Green Lake complained that he waited for an hour (really?).
One reason we won’t see this on real buses is that Metro tries to keep its fleet highly interchangeable and one bus may run on different routes during the day. Electronic paper might do the trick but it does have some issues.
