I’m fond of the Metro but don’t ride it enough to know where to get off for new locations. The WMATA maps are okay for figuring it out, but I’m spoiled – I like the cool draggable “Web 2.0” Google style maps. Happily there’s a pretty good gmaps mash-up out there in the form of DCRails. It’s far from perfect – the worst flaw I have found is that when you key in an address it doesn’t zoom in on it, leaving the little destination marker obscured by the larger metro icons – but it’s a good use of the technology and I’m hopeful they’ll update and improve it soon.
