U.S. Routes as Subway Map
The latest in my series of transit map-style diagrams - this time, of the U.S. Highway system. That’s U.S. Routes (like Route 66), not to be confused with the newer Interstate Highway system (I-5, I-20, etc.). Without a doubt, this is the most complex map of this type I have attempted - it’s needed three separate attempts over the course of more than a year to work this one out!As always, comments, suggestions and corrections are gratefully accepted. Read the full story about the project on my design blog here. Or head on over to Flickr, where you can view a nice big 4000px wide version of the map.Posters will almost certainly be forthcoming after the customary round of corrections and edits. Let me know if you are interested!

Look At This Fare-Dodging Cat of the Day: A ginger mixed-breed cat named Dodger — after Oliver Twist’s Artful Dodger — has made habit of boarding the bus near his home, aptly dodging the fare in the process.

Apparently, the moggy regularly rides from his home in Bridpost, Dorset, to nearby Charmouth and back. Bus drivers on the route look forward to his daily visits, even bringing along a tin of cat food for him to snack on.

Owner Fee Jeanes says she believes Dodger picked up his unusal routine after people at the bus stop, which is just outside his house, started giving him food. He soon began boarding the bus, finding it warm “like a greenhouse.”

A spokesperson for the bus firm, First, said the company didn’t mind the cat’s freeloading, but have told drivers to stop encouraging him.

“[W]e recognise that cat has an owner and we do not want to discourage it from returning home for food and shelter,” said the spokesman. “Given this cat is elderly we suspect it would be eligible for free travel, perhaps a bus puss, if such a thing existed.”
