I hate the way it looks , the LRT and other connecting systems are pushed off the map basically...and this map seems to leave no room for future expansions.

Yea, that map's pretty beat. They did a bad job with proportions, the commuter lines are way too big compared to PATCO, PATH, etc.

Also, the very shape of NJ looks weird in this map.

At least there is plenty of space in Southern New Jersey for future expansions since there are hardly any rail lines down here to begin with

If they made the background white instead of blue, it would be an ideal map. Train line mapmakers should in my opinion always look towards the DC Metro map for inspiration. Some call it childish, but its easily one of the easiest to understand while still being elegant.
