Calgary Transit

It’s not where you’re going, it’s how you get there …

Individually, the Calgary Transit 2011 Monthly Passes are pretty simple, but when you piece together the entire 12-month set, things really come to life.

To depict one of Canada’s largest transit systems, only one graphic element was used — the 2010-11 system map, split into 12 segments with each section overlapping a portion of the next. Every inch of the transit system was used, ensuring every rider would eventually get to see their route.

Update (Oct. 2012): Spacing Magazine (Fall 2012 National Issue) selected the passes a as winning entry to their Creative Mapping Contest: Cartographically Speaking.
