Fictional Transit System Projects

Using the imagination to create vast transit systems.

Welcome to the Fictional Transit System Projects page. Here I will summarize my small collection of fictional public transit systems. Some systems are based on real life systems while others are set entirely in a fictional world.

Pinellas Suncoast Transit Authority Fictional System

Using Google Maps, I’ve created my own version of the PSTA bus network – comprising of far more routes than the actual system. Please keep in mind that this is still a work in progress, and I will not post the link until it is closer to completion.


Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Fictional System

My fictional HART network using Google Maps is also very expansive – serving more areas than ever imagined with the real-life system. Please keep in mind that this is still a work in progress, and I will not post the link until it is closer to completion.


Hampton Roads, VA Fictional Rail System

In 2012, I started creating a rudimentary fictional subway and light rail network in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia. This project was shelved in 2015, but I hope to return to it one day soon if time allows. Below is the original intentions of what I wanted to make blog posts about.


Fictional Long Island

When one thinks of Long Island, you automatically think of Long Island in New York. Well, my version of Long Island is vastly different than the real-life one. In fact, my version is far more developed and has many elements that one would not even think of ever being in a specific region of the US when it comes to transit.

For those of you who are fans of the Mario franchise, there are many treats hidden within this fictional land. What if…just what if…the Mushroom Kingdom was thrusted into the modern age? Well, there are such elements that present a modern look to some of the venues such as Peach’s Castle.

Cindyville

Probably one of my first entirely fictional transit projects was the fictional city of Cindyville. Cindyville is a blend of both Tampa, FL & Nashville, TN – encompassing infrastructural elements from both cities, as well as buildings, venues, & neighborhoods. Cindyville has a decent bus system, two elevated rail lines (similar to the Chicago El), and two people mover lines. There is also a commuter rail line (based off Nashville’s Music City STAR) that connects the eastern suburbs to the downtown area.

Shaunville

A sixth network is in planning, the Shaunville Elevated Metro, similar to the Chicago “El”. Shaunville is nestled in what would be real-life Miami-Dade County, FL.
