Mapnificent

Last week, Taylor sent me this really cool website.
www.mapnificent.net

Basically you select a city that has public transit, type in your address, and select a period of time (like 30 minutes).  It will show you where you can get from that address by public transit in that period of time.  So below you can see where Taylor and I can get on DART (Dallas transit) in 30 minutes from our home.

It’s kind of sad because Dallas is such a huge city with buildings spread apart so you can’t get very far.  If you look at the New York or Boston you can cover the same distances in half an hour but there is much more within that area.  I could actually walk west from our apartment for 30 minutes and be outside the range that public transit can take me.
