Make Your Own Transit Map
Transitive.js is a tool for creating your own transit maps. Using Transitive.js you can create transit maps with dynamic features including stops, transit lines and individual journeys. The library allows for dynamic styling of the different network elements, which means you can highlight a single transit line, journey or station on the map.
Transtitve.js also now includes the option to overlay your created transit map on top of a Mapbox map. This means that you can create a powerful transit map for any location in the world, with the ability to dynamically highlight any features on the map at will.
Check out this demo map which allows you to view three different journey routes from Wilson Boulevard to Union Station in Washington, DC. The menu allows you to select any of the three individual routes and see it highlighted on the map.
