Lohnes + Wright

The Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system map is a familiar sight to Bay Area residents and area travelers. Being such an iconic image, it's creators are relatively unknown. After numerous BART trips and views of the BART system map over the years, I finally noticed a small icon in the corner of the map indicating it's creators. Lohnes + Wright is the GIS and Custom Mapping team that created the BART system map, as well as maps for equally notable clients such as the Chicago Transit Authority, The University of California Press, and the USDA Forest Service. As a map lover and geography nerd, I was pleased to find this morsel of cartographic knowledge.
