This project aimed to encourage the use of Dublin's public transport services by visually simplifying the network and promoting the idea of integration.
In this project, earlier attempts at mapping soon made it obvious that mapping every single stop in the network was not viable, with the average distance between Dublin Bus stops just 250 metres. Early tests at mapping the city centre clearly illustrated a system that was becoming intangible.
The sheer number of stops needed to serve all the routes combined with the one-way road system make the system a logistical nightmare. The easiest way to describe it is, if you were to travel on any service in Dublin, you would end up or pass through the city centre in almost every instance.
Once the routes were identified, I then had eliminate unimportant stops. I chose only to include interchanges and where they terminated to differentiate their directions. The maps below contain the routes integral the integrated system.
The final outcome was a large print of the core integrated routes in the Dublin transport system. It's designed to give the user a general idea of how to get from one area of Dublin to another.
This was my Showcase project for IADT where it was exhibited.
