Design-focused website Design Work Life pointed us to, an impressive resource for information about the New York City subway system.

The website has an entire page dedicated to the archiving of historical NYC subway maps that date from 1880 to the present day—the page also features a smaller selection of bus maps.

The designs of the older subway maps are distinctly different from what commuters are used to today, and reflect the changing graphic design styles used over the years.


If you are a lover of transit maps, this page will keep you happily engrossed—view more vintage maps of the NYC subway over here.
