  • Obnoxious full page ads

    By Great until ads
    Ads are beyond reasonable, if selling an ad free version of an app whose purpose is to sell you another service is ever reasonable. There are the normal small ads on the main page that make it slow to load. Then, if you leave it unattended for a minute or so, a full page ad pops up. It includes more stops and I like that it shows you the schedule as well as real time. It's no more accurate than the earlier version and not really worth switching.
  • Accuracy of the bus app

    By amywah
    Often this app says a bus is coming and the bus doesn’t come or the time changes abruptly forward or back
  • NH2 Bus Route and Route Planner

    By Smoothguy84
    Why isn’t the NH2 bus route on here? This route has been operating since October 2016. Goes from King Street metro to National Harbor/MGM casino. Also, this app doesn’t have route planner....Delete!

  • Messy Interface not focused on the main task.

    By Wm.
    Because the feedback mechanism does not work in the app.... App interface is really messy and it makes it hard to use. The workflow is also not accommodating to the regular scenario for the new and current user. Consider that the Apple Maps app opens to a map. It tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to go. The interface is simple, clean, effective. It uses progressive disclosure to bury the “additional information”. Isn’t Metro an app that users use to find out how to get to their destination in the same manner, simply focused on the use of metro services? Suggest that this app should simply open to a map with the flags showing where I am and where the bus stops are. Everything else should be a drill down. The search at the top of the map display should be the drill down for locations giving priority to metro routes . Like the maps app, an expansion below could show other options. Maps shows a fast nav menu for restaurants, etc. metro could do something similar and show stops, initially organized by distance from user. And if Advertizing is necessary, please consider the use of Apples iAd interface instead of the Pandora approach to butchering the user experience.
  • Terrible

    By Dan Sells DC
    Terrible app It’s complicated to use.
  • Better if icon can be updated.

    By Mirage09_
    A good app that can tell me when metro will arrive. But the icon is a little outdated. If the developer can adapt iPhone X’s UI, then maybe can update app icon as well.
  • Not completely pleased.

    By Kenny K.
    There’s a pretty extensive network of metro rails and busses; however, the hours of operation and fares for metro rail are not suitable. The fares are too high, and the trains do not run late enough to be useful for people who have business late in the evening. The city of DC, VA, and MD should offer incentives to people who buy metro tickets.
  • DC area metro app

    By calexa33
    This app is really good, though would be better if my bus route had the correct information. The developers need to re-look at or update wmata’s bus routes. The route I take starting from the Maryland side has the incorrect destination so I can never tell if the bus is on schedule or not. I wish they would fix this cause I think it would be the perfect app to use.
