Los Angeles and "Her" Future Transit System

One of the Best Picture nominees in Sunday's Academy Awards is Her. The movie takes place in a future LA with skyscrapers and a much more comprehensive transit system. There is a scene in the movie that was shot in a subway (or light rail) station. This map is in the background.
The map was designed by Champion Studio and posted on Gizmodo. The designers had fun with it giving stations names like Hair Salon and Private Drive. There are a number of other odd touches like a stop in the river, several lines not listed in the legend and a fictional transit authority.
The LAMLR has a nicely designed logo featuring an elevated train and the words "Sea to Summit." For more details and a readable map see the Gizmodo post.
