I understand Metro's need to get information out about Rush+. It's going to confuse a lot of people.

But making these very slick, and no doubt expensive, five-panel brochures seems over the top for a transit agency that's perennially "broke."

Couldn't this information just have been put on a regular piece of paper?

Then there's the Rush+ marketing one reader called "asinine."

Metro's even ponied up the dough for yet another survey about Rush+ marketing and promotion.

And they're raising fares--again.

At least the fancy brochures are good as stylish and very expensive coasters:

Via @citygirldc: Hello @wmata. Had a great idea for your new brochure: bar coasters. And yes, I'd love a job in your marketing dept.
