Recently moved to DC have found this app priceless It helps with very accurate bus AND train schedules Shows accurate realtime data not just official schedulesA must have                If you live or visit DC get this app
I Like many reviewers on here thinkone either loves or hates this app It works great during weekday rush hours and the alerts are timely One gets a good picture of how unreliable Metro really is But on Saturday and Sunday it is useless since there is hardly ever data available A lot of us work on weekends you know I would have rated the app a 0 zero but to be fair 40 of the time it works great       Meh
This app was not as good as they made it sound    Terrible
A very great helpful and up to date app                Amazing
Todays Metro Misfortune comes in a long line of other such events The time was 440 The G2 was scheduled to arrive at Prospect St in Georgetown at 451 My Real Time meter showed that the next bus wouldnt be here for at least 20 minutes As a frequent victim of deadwrong times on the app I figured Id wait at the stop anyway just in case it still showed up according to the regular schedule No more than 2 minutes later the bus arrived when I was in the Car Barn tossing a paper cup I would have been more vigilant but the realtime prediction still said 20 minutes and the schedule said 451 so I still had a solid 7 or 8 minutes even by the normal schedule I chased it three blocks to no avail Other bus riders can empathize with the soulcrushing feeling of seeing your bus drive into the distance and knowing that you get to wait for another 30 minutes This happens to me all the time Im going to have nightmares about chasing the bus for years to come Working in the metroless wasteland of Georgetown just makes it worse The realtime predictions are often right But when theyre wrong which is easily just as often it extends a 50 minute commute to an hour and a half thanks to the G2s infamous come when I want mentality In short please for the love of all that is good in the world fix your app DC commuters are counting on you to keep our tenuous sanity in check So far not good    Fix your App
The new version of this app is awful All my favorites disappeared In addition bus stops are missing now Like they never existed So for me its no longer possible to add my bus stops to my favorites because they no longer exist What a worthless app now I wish I never upgraded Im missing busses and can no longer get anywhere efficiently because I never know when the bus will arrive at the stop Im not sure who developed the newest upgrade but they should be fired I relied on this app heavily to get places by bus and now it is worthless    Do not upgrade
This app is so accurate it has gps for the bus and trainsI never have to rely on schedules because of this appMust have if you live in the DMV and catch public transportation                Best dmv public transportation app ever
Can the Arlington ART bus schedules be added Their realtime app is horrible Also please add the stop number to the favorite drill down screen I have many favorites so I have to keep going back to see that Im looking at the right stop predictions             Works well for me
I used this app during my vacation in Washington and it was very helpful The feature when it tells you what time your train is getting there is very convenient as well                Very Good
This app is not accurate I waited for a bus that said 5 mins for at least 25 minutes False advertisement    Very angry
This is indeed a life saving app no thought and it works well but yall should also try to integrate a tab that enables you to view how much funds you have left on your smart trip card It would be totally helpful So yall should link up with wmata for that please                Take this opinion seriously
Like the app and use it often Very predictable 90 of the time and I think when its not its on Metrobus GPS issues not the app I write that because often times when I see a long wait predicted I check a rival app and same info My one gripe is when sending update info to the app developer I wish theyd investigate faster and make corrections There are a few renamed routes that I sent to review folks that still show wrong route info months later i e in DC U2 is now V2 and V7 and V9 have been discontinued replaced by a new route V4 The predicted times show the correct route but the title of the routes are wrong Other than that its all good             Very Good and Meets My Needs
Orange line had major problem with switch at Vienna Only every other train going past west falls church No mention of this in alerts    Cant give it a zero
Functionality is great that it does both bus and metro also great it has location based bus stop search it is still missing bus stops for circulator dc Ive complained to developer multiple times Also the metro map doesnt load now Wish they hadnt upgraded this app and left it as it was    A great start still bad since update
Love it                Good
Fix now My bus schedule is all out of whack and the schedule has buses on there that dont even stop there I like knowing the real time for my buses but the schedule portion makes it impossible to plan    Fix it now
The apps features are nice but the arrival times provided are rarely correct The incorrect times make the nice features pointless       Needs improvement
I am a daily metro bus commuter and use this application to guide my arrival to the bus stop When used with metro alerts you have the information you need to plan your daily commute             Metro Essential
This ap used to be my favorite bus tracker but now it is too laden with ads Video ads will take over your screen and cannot be closed So longtime to find a new bus tracker    Too many ads
Just began using the app with this current version Doesnt completely replace the website but its a nice tool to have for a DC metro area newcomer             Not too shabby
The search capability is so limited on this you need to know exactly how to get to where you are going to query for results A waste    You need to know where youre going
The map is blank    No map
App not helpful when it says WAMATA reporting no data    Metro rail rider
Love it                Sweet
The problem its not its accuracy that is pretty good But this app sometimes works and a lot of the time doesnt Data is never available It hasnt been reporting data for my usual buses for weeks Really annoyingTo be fair I think its the best amongst its competition       You cant count on this app
Sometimes 23 minutes off but best app Ive tried so far             Almost always right
easy to access favorite stations                VERY GOOD
It is a wonderful app I have ever used Always estimates correctly                Best
This is the most accurate app Ive found for tracking WMATA bus and metro and I feel like Ive tried all of them The interface is easy and uncluttered Chalk this one in the W column                Easy and accurate
The app will tell you the wait is two minutes and you will end up freezing after waiting in the cold for 35 minutes The Washington DC bus system it a joke The only reason people need these apps are because they never run on schedule anyway Drive if you can    A good app made useless by DC buses
Im occasional bus rider and I find this app very helpful in negotiating times and routes to take             Very helpful
Love it                Metro app
Good app                
Unforgivably bad usability and functionality    POS get Embark DC instead
Fix the schedule Doesnt even report all the stops anymore They need to do an update    Update This Mess
There is an issue where of the bus times just disappear          Issue
No maps       Update
This app has been tons of help I strongly recommend it to get around the DC area                Very Convenient
Add at least 5 minutes to every time posted    An attempt at accuracy would be nice
Most of the time the Vienna metro doesnt have any departure times Makes it really tough to plan a trip       inaccurate metro info
Very accurate Never leaves me guessing                
I like this app a lot and have been using it for over a year now but recently after the last two updates my bus stop just disappeared as if the bus doesnt come there Now I have to guess how long it takes for the bus to leave from the stop before mine K9 to fort totten NH Ave E W Hwy please fix this issue Thanks             Bus stop disappeared
After I downloaded the new version my stations are no longer listed in the app This application is useless if users cant find the needed stations I reported this issues last year and received a response that the issues are being investigated and being rectified Up to now my stations are still missing Such a useless app    My stations are not listed
Your real time is so in error when the last bus is 652 pm and u r saying the bus will be there in 20mins Are u have a hard time connecting to WMATA This is nerve wrecking for the past week get it together Otherwise its OK but I need a back up App          What is Going On
Does not provide warnings like for the ridiculous delays caused by Metro on 51115 on orange and silver lines NO warnings NO alternative routes NO apologies and NO refunds    Useless
Since Metro refuses to be on schedule this helps me predict the bus and metro arrivals Very helpful             Accurate and easy to use
Im new to DMV I can tell you that this is very useful and on time and very reliable for me despite the most recent reviews I have seen Shows you the closest bus stop and metros the schedule and the time No need to look at papers for time Theres another app just like this but a white icon that has less features One thing I will suggest is to add a map like Google to show you how to get from point A to B GPS This app in particular is the best out of all apps for transportation in the DMV Highly Recommend             Very Useful and Accurate
I just noticed that every time I open the app my music stops playing Please fix this       Music stops playing
Very accurate If you catch Metro you need this                Must Have
