A colorful guide to the nation’s biggest transit systems

This great infographic from the University of North Carolina’s School of Government is a handy guide to the nation’s five biggest public transportation systems, complete with history and various “issues” that plague each system. (Apparently, Chicagoans and Bostonians would appreciate a little more civility from their bus and train operators, while folks in D.C. just want the escalators to work!) I want to print it out and hang it in my cubicle.

Take a look and tell us what you think.
