HARLEM LINE TRAIN SCHEDULE
The objective of the project is to redesign the Harlem line train schedule. The original design, which is shown on the right, is confusing and harsh on the eyes for new passagers. I reorganized all the information and decided to separate the schedule from its various departure locations. The key information, such as the departure time and the peak, are changed into military time and highlighted. The pamphlet can be opened as a poster or folded into a 4x6 inches pocket-size.
When the pamphlet is folded, the cover clearly indicate the train direction, the departure location, and what kind of schedule it is (weekdays or weekend). The users only have to carry the schedule that they frequently board on, instead of having all the extra information to confuse them. Cyan is the main color used throughout all the pamphlets, so we know they are grouped as a complete Harlem line schedule. All the guides and rules of the MTA are placed on this side and are placed on top a dark green box to emphasize them. When the user collects all the pamphlet as a set and opens them as a poster, a beautiful photograph of the final stop, Grand Central will unfolded (See it in Web Version).
The back side features all the time-related information. Each station is marked with keys, such as bus transfer and handicapped sign. The time tables are in a different shades of cyan to color differentiate the different departure locations.
