Colombo Bus Map v0.2.4

I love the London Tube map and thought of making a map of Colombo's bus routes using the same principle, i.e. topology over geography.

Excel file I used to draw the map:

Bus routes:
  • 100 Panadura - Pettah
  • 101 Moratuwa - Pettah
  • 120 Horana/Kesbewa - Pettah
  • 141 Wellawatta - Narahenpita
  • 177 Kollupitiya - Kaduwela
  • 154 Angulana - Kiribathgoda / Bambalapitiya - Kadawatha
  • 138 Homagama/Athurugiriya/Rukmalgama/Matthegoda/Kottawa/Maharagama - Pettah
  • 122 Rathnapura/Awissawella - Pettah
  • 125 Meepe/Padukka - Pettah
  • 103 Narahenpita/Borella - Pettah
  • 175 Kollupitiya - Kohilawatta
  • 135 Kohuwala - Kelaniya
  • 140 Kollupitiya - Wellampitiya

Notes:
  • Variants may exist. A 154 might stop in Bambalapitiya, or a 103 might stop in Borella. Be aware of the stop names on the big yellow board.
  • The hollow lines follow the route of the filled lines unless otherwise specified.
