Redesigning Bus Maps for Enhanced Accessibility and a Unified Brand Experience

The Town of Chapel Hill Transit, aiming to provide exceptional transportation services to its residents, tourists, and students, recognized a need for a complete overhaul of its 20+ bus maps and brochures. The existing materials lacked cohesive branding, and their outdated and confusing designs made it hard for people to use figure out which routes they should be taking. To address these issues and improve the overall transit experience, Chapel Hill Transit turned to Carrboro Creative for help in creating modern, rider-friendly maps and brochures.In addition to the maps project, we have helped with various design projects, including physical signs for their park & rides.

Crafting a Consistent, Visually Engaging Design:

Emphasizing the importance of visual continuity and user-friendly design, Carrboro Creative devised a comprehensive brand guide with new colors, fonts, and style direction for Chapel Hill Transit bus maps.

Stand-Out Signage CHT Park & Rides

In addition to their newly designed maps, Chapel Hill transit needed signage for a new park and ride lot. The lot was being added next to a new mutli-use development and needed to blend in with the existing aesthetic. We pulled design elements from the building and came up with a brick and stone design.
