Small ideas can make Metro greater.

System map decals for ceilings of cars

Place decals of Metro system Maps on ceilings of the cars, preferably in between doors. This will encourage tourists to move to middle of car, away from doors, if they are able to see a system map that is not near a door.

Ceiling system maps will also be helpful to regular riders who are having to make detours during Safe Track surges.

I'm 5'3 and it can be EXTREMELY difficult to see the Metro map! By putting it on the ceiling, I would no longer have issues seeing the map! GREAT IDEA!!

Good idea, but make sure that they can't be peeled off as souvenirs.

Good idea but make sure it can't be easily peeled off as a souvenir or by vandals.

I think this is a great idea.

Yes, good idea, as a supplement to the maps at the doors. This would encourage more movement toward the center of the cars.
