App Reviews

  • Great app!

    This app does just what I need it to do. It tells me how long until the next few trains and which lines they are. I have found it to be very accurate, and it loads up immediately, unlike the WMATA web page. I like that you can try it free with ads. After 3 days of using it, I paid for the ad-free version. Definitely worth the cost for me. Note that I only ride the train, so can’t comment on buses.
  • Ad free?

    I’m wondering what happened to the ad-free version. I purchased it some time ago but am not able to reactivate with this update. The ads aren’t the big fulls teen ones that seemed to pop up at the worst possible time, leaving the schedule unviewable. Now the ads are small, but still annoying!!! I might purchase ad-free again if I could find how to do it, but it’s not under settings or alerts - at least I couldn’t find it!! 3-stars only because of that. I love this app!
  • Very user friendly -- love it!

    I love this app. I use it for both bus and train schedules. I find the information reliable. I love the "favorites" option; it streamlines my use of the app. I also appreciate how it filters notifications. I find I get very little irrelevant information that way. Lots of effort went into this design and it shows -- thank you!!
  • Needed, necessary, and helpful

    The only time I could ever complain was when the buses were indicted as arriving but they’re been a major accident that snarled traffic and they were nowhere about. The Alerts that normally indicate that problem had nothing to say about that. Otherwise it’s money well spent. Thanks for all the improvements. -Longtime rider
  • Not quite as bad as your actual subway system but

    Would be nice if your app was accurate. I’ve had multiple occasions where the app says shady grove will be here in five minutes and glenmont in one minute but it’s actually the other way around. Also, when your app is constantly three minutes behind the actual schedule it provides false hope to those of us who want to actually make the train.
  • DC area metro app

    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.
  • Obnoxious full page 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.
  • Easy connection.

    Was delighted with how easy it was to take the bus to Balston from my street and connect with the metro to my destination. The synchronized connection work coming back home as well. Easy and on time!
  • Good info

    Riders need the information when on a train so they know about transfers only most of the time there is no signal while on a train. WiFi at a station is not nearly as important as having it while transversing between stations.
  • Great and friendly
