Name the cities just by looking at the subway maps
« on: January 16, 2015, 06:52:48 PM »

This may or may not have been posted here before, but either way, it's fun. And I love subways (not the food chain).

I scored 8/10

I refuse to take that test because subways and other forms of public transportation are socialist and a waste of tax payer money.

7/10, and I missed one because I wasn't thinking.
I really liked that Atlanta kept being presented as an option, since our subway is terrible! The entire NW quadrant has nothing. I could rule that one out quickly.

Newark, NJ
Jersey City, Hoboken, Bayonne, North Bergen, Weehawken, NJ
I made the maps a long time ago so it is easy for me to identify the cities
But tecnhically, these are light rail maps not subway maps.
