Wayfinding in the Mexico City SubwayPosted by in News
I have a great appreciation for the Mexico City subway. Handling the 22 million+ population of the wider Mexico City area, I think it is a model for other cities worldwide. Besides being very clean, modern with beautiful polished gold marble floors in most stations, it is inexpensive (only 3 pesos for anywhere in the system, about 25 cents), and has a very clear wayfinding system.
As someone who has difficulty with Spanish (any language other than English actually), I benefit greatly from the pictograms that identify each station. These are consistent throughout the stations and on the trains of each line.
