What would the Dayton Transit Map for Optimists look like?

Picture of the Cincinatti Transit map for optimists t-shirtWhen gas hits $4 a gallon, or $5, this won’t seem like a stupid question at all.

Long ago I thought two major lines would go a long way. The West to East line would start at Westtown and the VA and head straight down Third street to WSU and then cut over to the Fairfield Commons mall. It would also have a branch from WSU to WPAFB.

The North South line was a little more complex- starting at the Airport, cutting down to what was the Salem Mall and Hara Arena, and then down to Third and Main straight shot down 48 and then over to the Dayton Mall and now then cut down to Lexis Nexis and Teradata.

We would also have two circulator routes: from UD Areana to UD up Brown past MVH to the Convention Center and then over to Sinclair, and back down Edwin C. Moses, and the other around downtown.

Of course the new high speed rail would tie in somewhere- esp. the one from Cincy to Dayton so that Sinclair can keep focused here and Warren County residents can ride up here to go to school.

Of course, someone in Cincy already has the shirt made for optimists only:

Wire & Twine : Cincinnati Transit Map for Optimists
Been meaning to create something for our hometown and wanted it to be special — something that incorporated the many neighborhoods of Cincinnati, had an eye to the future, and a bit of tongue in the cheek. And that is how the Cincinnati Transit Map for Optimists shirt came to life.

Maybe we should start with a shirt too- and get this train on track.
