Dear PoP – WMATA Map Fail

eastern market metro fail

“Dear PoP,

The photos show a WMATA map posted at the bus stop on 8th and D SE, across from the Eastern Market metro stop. You’ll notice, though, that the map indicates that the bus stop is located on 8th and D NE. This has got to be very confusing for tourists…but amusing for my father-in-law who noticed it after a weekend lunch at Belga Cafe.

Just another proud moment for WMATA, I suppose.”

The reader writes, “Even the “you are here” is wrong…it’s 8 blocks north of where the map is actually displayed.”
