Travel always opens my eyes to new concepts and UX alternatives. In Warsaw last week, I found a sign on the bus that wowed me with its usability.
This bus sign has three levels:
- The top level lists out all the stops, consistent with every other bus map I’ve encountered.
- The middle level (in red) divides the stops by neighborhoods.
- The bottom level divided the stops by street. As a tourist this was fantastic; I knew I wanted to get as far south on Ujazdowksie Street as possible. This map showed me when I was at the southernmost stop before the bus turned onto Armii Ludowej.
A few other gems from Eastern Europe:
Bikes get their own stop lights in Warsaw!
Trains in and around Berlin have hooks for bikes. So great for making commuting easier.
