Mark Ovenden's Transit Maps of the World, published earlier this year, has current and historic maps of every mass-transit system on Earth. But best of all is the opening image, a fanciful piece of cartography connecting all of the world's mass-transit cities on one convenient map. We know you can't see the details in our little 468-pixel window, so click here to check out a larger version and dream. You can take the red line from New York City all the way to Tokyo (if only), and if you transfer at Mexico City and Lisbon you can make it to South America's Yamanote-like loop-line.
