I assume each dot is a transit vehicle? Is it adjusted so a train carrying more people gets more dots or is brighter than a bus?

I think they are all dots - the ones with tails represent faster speed I believe

Also the Philly one excludes all NJT and PATCO services

The ones with tails are the regional rail trains. The subway and el appear as the appropriate blue and orange.

with a bus system that's essentially a grid it's funny to watch the G wind its crazy route through South, Southwest and West Philly.

If you watch the NYC video, right just past 7 am you'll the map shifts from scattered dots to a mesh full of solid lines as the frequency goes way up. It gets a bit dimmer after 8:30 am as rush hour ends, but the slow down is much smaller.

These maps might be a good way to how radial a transit system is — whether most transit journeys are on lines going in and out of downtown, or in other directions as well.
