WASHINGTON - Wondering when the next bus is coming or what's the best Metro train to take? Commuters can now check it in real time on their smartphones.
The new mobile site replaces an outdated version that didn't account for touch- screen navigation.
Among the features on the site:
- Trip Planner
- Next Train
- Next Bus
- Service Nearby
- Elevator Status
- Alerts & Advisories
- Call Transit Police
Customers can access the new mobile site by navigating to wmata.com from their smartphone browser.
The only drawback is the site does not work in some underground Metro stations where there is no cellphone signal.
