Six Metro stations south of Reagan National Airport have been closed all summer. As of this morning, they are reopened with new lights, new platforms, and ... new fonts?

The vendor in charge of the new Metro station signage will be fixing it, but until then, riders are on both sides of the fence with this issue. For most people, this isn't a big deal. In this area, though, with plenty of eagle-eyed riders mentally editing the new signage, the incorrect fonts are a bit annoying.

As you can see in these tweets, the new lettering is a bit too thick and cheerful, IMHO.

Ah well... it could be worse!

What do you think about the font issue on the new Metro signage? Is it cringe-worthy enough to affect your commute or just another quirk of the WMATA landscape? Sound off in the comments!
