A fairly bare bones effort, probably located at the Lem Hotel station as it gets called out with a “You Are Here” red dot and is also named on the map itself.
Strangely, the map makes the somewhat odd decision to not show the blue Line 2 where it runs concurrently with the green Line 1, which makes it look like Line 1 has two separate unconnected parts. The “rotating arrows” transfer station markers at St. Lucia and Stadium stations somehow manage to be less prominent than the normal station dots, which is fairly counter-intuitive. There’s decent integration of the Amharic script for bilingual station labels, but the map’s legend is only in Amharic (fortunately, the legend isn’t really necessary for a map this simple).
At first, I thought this was a simplified diagram of the network, but a look at a geographical map of the network (below, from Wikipedia) shows that it’s actually a good representation of the real thing.
The final word: Very basic, but certainly usable. 2 stars.
