Winning design by Mikheil Kvrivishvili

The MBTA crowdsourcing contest to invite graphic designers to help redesign the T System Map is currently featured as the lead Innovative Project by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program.

The Transportation Planning Capacity Building Program assists decision makers and transportation officials in resolving complex issues involved in meeting transportation needs in communities across the U.S.

The Innovative Project Feature highlights and celebrates innovative transportation planning projects, plans, and practices.

The current highlighted Project Feature, “Crowdsourcing the System Map – Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority,” describes the 2013 MBTA system map contest process which attracted more than 30 map designers from around the world and 17,000+ online voters who assisted the MBTA in choosing the winning map, above.

By crowdsourcing its new system map, the U.S. DOT notes, the MBTA saved time and money.
