NJ Transit and the MTA, all on one diagram.

New Yorkers have to resort to eBay for a Massimo Vignelli-designed MTA subway map. But Super Bowl attendees will get something almost as good when they're in town.

Festivities for the big game are spread between Manhattan's Times Square, Newark's Prudential Center, and the MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. So getting around by public rail involves, depending on your route, the PATH, NJ Transit, the MTA subway, the Long Island Railroad or even Amtrak.

To make life easier, the New York/New Jersey Super Bowl Committee asked designer Yoshiki Waterhouse of Vignelli Associates to merge all the systems onto one diagram.

The result is the closest thing the New York City area has to an all-in-one rapid transit map. The host committee has been passing them out to fans and media and has made it available online. But if you're a regular New Jersey to Manhattan commuter, or just a design fan, you should probably get your hands on one of one these before they end up as an expensive collector's item.
