Beautiful…transit systems?

Oh my.

Well then

Umm. Why in the world don’t most of our transit systems look like this? What fabulous city planning and infrastructure!

Except for one thing. They don’t actually exist.

These stunning, high-color maps were created by Ian Silva, who drives a commuter train in Sydney, Australia. And he created them just for fun.

These transit systems are built upon a made up island that he calls the Koana Islands. He even has intricate details about this made-up place: for instance, the language is a mixture between English and Swedish, and the number for emergency services is 7777.

Which has us dreaming of these lovely, transit-friendly islands.
