WASHINGTON DC (WUSA) --- New colors and icons may be a part of an updated edition of the Metrorail map.
The Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority asks the public to take an online survey to state preferences on color, icon and name displays for the Metrorail map.
The current map reflects the railway system after the Blue Line was completed in 2004, according to Steven Taubenkibel, Metro spokesman.
The updated map will reflect the changes such as the Dulles extension. Survey takers will be asked for their preference on the color of the new rail line: silver, orange, or other. The survey also asks participants to pick their preference for the design of specific icons like parking and future rail stations.
Participants will also be asked if certain signs should remain or be eliminated from the new map.
The survey explains why Metro is making the revisions.
"Metro is in the process of updating our iconic Metrorail map as we prepare for new rail service on the Dulles extension and the realignment of some Blue Line trains via the Yellow Line bridge. So far, we've gathered feedback from customer focus groups, Greater Greater Washington and designer, Lance Wyman.
Now, it's your turn.
We'd like to get your feedback on our proposed changes through this online survey. The survey takes about 8 minutes to complete, and your preferences will help shape the final map design."
