This Is What A Day Of NYC's Public Transport Looks Like

Gripe and moan about it all you like, but public transport is a fundamental part of keeping any big city running. This data visualisation shows just how complex New York City's public transit setup is.

Put together by YouTube user STLTransit, the video is a visualisation of a single day's public transit, between 4am and 4am. It's made possible by the open source General Transit Feed Specification data from the MTA. Personally, I love the way that the routes become obvious as the city wakes up. [YouTube via The Verge]
