The most useless map ever
They’ve also posted this gem on the Myki web site: Under Maps / Metro trains, it purports to be a “Metro train zones” map.
What an utterly pointless creation. No reference point other than the bay. How does this help anybody at all?
(Stop press: I gave feedback to the TTA yesterday, and they appear to have already taken it offline.)
Mind you, it could be worse. Because it’s so uninformative, at least it’s not wrong.
Unlike this one, which appeared on stations in late-2003, and is riddled with errors:
Apart from the fact that it’s severely not-to-scale (Box Hill is not next to Belgrave, and neither are Clayton, Glen Waverley and Box Hill all adjacent; Ashburton is actually north of East Malvern), it manages to put some places in the wrong zones: Williamstown is actually well within Zone 1, whereas Laverton, Sunshine and others are on the zone overlap.
In both of these cases, you really have to wonder: What were they thinking?
