Challenge

Toronto’s Subway system is often crowded at a few stations while others are quite sparse. As a commuter, I wanted to know which stations had the most amount of passengers waiting on the platforms on an average weekday. 


Research & Ideation  

Luckily the TTC’s website had its station ridership information in a spreadsheet. It was only organized by line and was not a pretty sight. At first I began to lay them out geographically but found this method had too much dead space and the geography of the station was not the main data point for my exploration. 


Solution

I organized the stations by their ranking because it was the focus of my question. After some feedback from friends, I added a map in the lower corner. This helped viewers understand the location of each station. I chose muted colours for boxes to not compete with the bright subway line colours.
