The MTA doesn't exactly use all the letters in either of those fonts. There are some letters that don't look like the ones in the bullets. At best, you can extract the outlines directly from the Subway map. I ran into problems with the (Q) and (R) which seems to have inconsistent font usage between bullets, maps, and signage.
