MetroHero: WMATA DC Metrorail Apk
MetroHero is the free app you need AND the one you deserve, designed specifically for commuters, by commuters. Unlike Google Maps, Transit, Citymapper, and even local apps like ‘DC Metro and Bus’ and ‘DC Metro Transit’, we don’t rely on train predictions data from WMATA! And because we crunch all our own numbers, we can provide you with lots of valuable information they can’t: visualize the real-time position of every Metrorail train to get the clearest picture of the current state of the entire DC Metro system; watch trains move down the tracks and be alerted to potential problem areas with delay heatmaps and crowd-sourced reports for stations and individual trains; see expanded arrival times for trains that aren’t listed on WMATA’s station boards or any other app.
Here are just some of the ways MetroHero will revolutionize your Metrorail commute:
* REAL-TIME TRACKING: watch trains travel to and from stations–live!
* DELAY HEATMAPS: see exactly where to expect congestion, slowdowns and delays based on recent train activity
* CURRENT HEADWAYS: view metrics about active revenue trains, the entire rail system, or just the lines you care about
* CROWDSOURCED REPORTING SYSTEM: help other MetroHero users avoid headaches or give them a heads-up when things are going right by tagging stations and trains
* TWITTER UPDATES: see recent tweets about station problems from official WMATA Twitter accounts and other riders
* PER-STATION REPORTS: drill into specific stations to get train ETAs and other details
* AUTOMATIC UPDATES: no need to swipe to refresh what you see; it’s always up-to-date!
As of January 15th, 2016 (v2.1.0 of the app), we rely exclusively on donations via Patreon to keep MetroHero running–no ads! Please consider becoming a patron at www.patreon.com/metrohero to show your support and to keep MetroHero ad-free.
