Ratings and Reviews
App is Great! Although needs emergency instant messenger
Love the app really useful and always works. Best feature is the metro map. However, there should be a way to instantly report things/alert metro police. For instance right now on the metro there is a homeless, crazy, or drunk person stumbling throughout the cart and has not gotten off. It would be nice to have an instant messenger to alert your organization when disorderly conduct that is not criminal is occurring so you will be able to remove this person from bother the paying customers. Or when for the 100th time in the hour the kids take over some of the cars, blast music and dance.
App Works Great—- then bus *disappears*
This app is fantastic, until suddenly there’s no data. This has happened multiple times when tracking the T2 bus from my home in Bethesda southbound to Friendship Heights, and northbound from Friendship Heights towards my home in Bethesda. “WMATA reporting no data” appears on the screen. So frustrating. Makes an otherwise fantastic app completely useless.
Several times in Friendship Heights, my bus is tracked by the app, and I time my arrival at the stop for 10 minutes before the bus is predicted to arrive. A few minutes after my arrival, that bus disappears from the app and the next bus (which is to arrive 30 or so minutes later) is the only one showing up on the app! What happened? Did my bus show up early? No, about 8 minutes later, my bus shows up at the stop (not on the app), and the driver is oblivious to the problem. (There is also the additional problem that buses show up at the stop with Not In Service on their displays, and you have to ask the driver to identify their bus— super annoying). I want to do right by the environment by using public transportation, but WMATA and this app have not ironed out the kinks.
I am delighted to say your metro system is just wonderful! We just spent our first week in Washington, a delightful surprise. One of your top attractions (but with powerful competition !!!) Spotless carriages and stations , pleasant and helpful staff. One negative for newcomers… Metro stations are not signposted!! A significant issue.
Fares are very reasonable and zero graffiti noted!
We are world travelers -/ Sydney, Frankfurt, Rome, Paris London and worst of all… Boston- our current home!
Thank you for a wonderful experience —- Washington and it’s Metro!
