WMATA rejoins 21st Century, adds data to Google Maps


To quote my boy Andy Samberg, “Google Maps is the best, true that, double true!

Finally, you can use Google Maps, on your mobile devices or your computers, to navigate the wilds of WMATA transportation. WMATA flipped the switch this afternoon shortly after they announced a media availability with Google after their board of directors tomorrow.  I talked about why google maps matters, especially in the context of tourism, last month, and I’m very glad to see WMATA finally get their act together in bringing their data to Google Maps.

If you used to make the excuse “Well, I don’t how to get there on public transportation,” now you have one less excuse to take transit less and drive more.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
