Now's your chance to go full transit geek.

SFMTA has launched its "Subway Vision" web page as a first step in developing a long-range transportation plan for the next fifty years. Or as they explained it in their release:

We want you to help draw the San Francisco subway map of the future.

We’ve teamed up with the San Francisco Planning Department and other city partners to launch a new website where you can help shape the city's plan for future subway — our Subway Vision for the next fifty years. It’s part of the foundation we’re laying for an effective, equitable and sustainable transportation network for the future of San Francisco.

To get this right, we need your input on priorities – whether it’s extending the Central Subway to Fisherman’s Wharf, building a second Transbay Tube for BART into Mission Bay or extending the Market Street subway across the city to allow for longer trains.

Streetsblog took a quick and dirty stab at it (see the results below).

SFMTA's also planning a series of "pop up" meetings to get feedback as it develops its plans.

For now, we hope readers will have some fun and play with the map a bit. And who knows? Some of the lines you draw your kids or grandkids might actually get to ride.
