Greater Greater Washington readers love Metro maps. Over the last 10 years, we've featured a bunch of custom Metro maps on the site, from time-lapses of its development and sketches of future expansion to parody maps. Now, you can see them in print on your table too!

What's inside?

Original Metro concept sketches from the 1960s. A decade-by-decade look at how Metro has expanded over the last 40 years. The 11 types of Metro station architecture. And creations from the late transit graphic designer Peter Dovak, including his last piece of work for GGWash, the Halloween version of the Metro map.

Why your support matters

You know that GGWash serves a unique niche in Washington's media landscape. If you turn to GGWash for wonky, policy, data-driven news about the housing, transportation, land use, and urban policy decisions happening across the region, please help pay for it.  

Donations from readers are an important part of our budget. Your individual contributions help pay for costs to keep the site up and running, including having a full-time editor. Your support also means we can bring you local elections coverage through an urbanism lens and advocate for smarter urbanist policies. 

Thank you for your support!
