Seeing Red On Metrorail’s Green Line

This Green Line WMATA Metrorail train has me seeing red in the morning and not because of the Nats.

I am seeing red because the advertising-free clean lines of the original Metro design are being distorted by crass consumerism.

Yes, WMATA should be looking for alternate revenue sources because the three states it serves chronically underfund mass transit. But aggressive advertising like this visual assault is over the line.

What next? WMATA pimping Bemmers in Metro stations?
