Bob Yirka reports on an article by British and French researches in the Journal of the Royal Society Interface, that all of the large city subway systems in the world grow in a way that share common features – such as the fact that they all have central cores with a branch topology.

If we understand the mathematics that govern subway systems, will future subway designers skip the planning and get to the ideal design more quickly? What would these researchers say about Toronto’s Transit City?
