Do you live in or near Washington, DC and ride Metro bus, rail, the Circulator, or the streetcar? Then this app is for you!

Find the nearest Metro bus, rail, Circulator, or streetcar stops, when the next bus or train is arriving, and where each route will take you -- all in real time. Plan your trip with built-in transit directions, save your favorite stops for easy access, or search for route maps by name. All with a beautiful interface and lightning quick responsiveness.

It's a joy to use. Green pins on the map are bus stops. Red pins are rail. And purple is the Circulator and the streetcar. Tap a pin to view arrival predictions for that stop. Then, tap the star icon to save to favorites or tap each line to view a route map, so you know where you're going. Use the tabs at the bottom to view the map, favorites, plan trips with transit directions, or view a list of all routes and route maps.

I take the bus and train to work and I made this after my favorite app stopped working. I hope you find it as useful as I do!

Note: If you encounter any problems or bugs -- stops don't work, lines are wrong, etc... -- or if you want to help me make this app better, go to http://bustrackdc.com/#support for ways to get in touch or email seminal@theseminal.com.

Searching by bus line is not working

Hello, thanks for developing an app different from others in the area. I have tried from two different phones and reinstalling the app but the search by bus line (third button at the bottom left to right) is not working, it’s frozen when you search or scroll. It would be nice to get the functionality back of searching for a route and see all the stops. Thank you.

Missing lines?

App folks! Love the app and works great. But, uh, is there a reason it's convinced the p6 southbound line doesn't exist? I mean, I use it regularly so I'm pretty sure it does but on the app? Nada.

Developer Response ,

Please email at seminal@theseminal.com which exact stop you're looking at and I can take a look. Typically issues like this are due to errors in WMATA's data feeds, but those can be reported to WMATA and usually fixed.

Just what I needed!

For some reason, it's really hard to find a free DC bus tracking app that includes the Circulator. This app does the job beautifully! I've only had it a couple weeks but it's already saved me from missing a couple buses. Highly recommend.
