subway desert

(名詞) 捷運沙漠 - 城市中捷運系統服務不足的地區。亦叫做 transit desert

Lots of the “subway deserts” shown here aren’t actually transit deserts once you take bus service into account.
—Eric Jaffe, “Where the New York City Subway Doesn’t Go,” CityLab, August 5, 2015

What is telling is how much of the city outside of Manhattan is not covered by more than one line — which means when that line fails or is out of service, that much more of the city is in a subway desert.
