The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) has released a draft of the soon-to-be-updated Metrorail map and is seeking public comment. See the new map and take the survey on the WMATA website.

The new map incorporates hints of the Dulles extension, changes to Blue and Yellow service, as well as myriad graphic changes.

This is only a draft for the map, which will surely see changes in coming months. It sill looks like the 35-year-old original, but updated. I think the shortened station names, smaller icons and geographical corrections are vast improvements.

The Washington Post has a story about the map and their version of the map includes some explanation of the changes.

What do you think?
