Peter Bain has had an article published in the Parsons Journal for Information Mapping (Volume III, Issue 3, Summer 2010). In “Aspects of Transit Map Design,” Bain examines the design challenges posed by printed maps for rail and bus systems.  He analyzes the solutions of map designers for the London, New York and Paris transit systems.  The current value of printed transit maps in an age of handheld devices, and guidelines for their design, are evaluated.
