Metro Unveils New Online Station Maps Powered By Google

metromaps.pngMetro’s unveiled new online maps for their stations, which include local business listings, all powered by Google Maps (It’s the best. True that, Double True.) Now you can see restaurants, banks, grocery stores, hotels, and museums near any metro station in the system, which can be mighty handy for printing out before you head to a part of town you’ve never been to before. Nicely done, WMATA.

    http://www.readexpress.com has been doing that since they went online last year. Extremely handy.

    About time WMATA caught up.

    tom, thanks for the info. but, i did a search on my two most common metro stops and i found the information marginly useful. when i did a search on restaurants near the bethesda metro, it highlighted the jerry’s subs located in the exxon stations. i guess that is useful to some people.

    Radman: Don’t blame WMATA for that. Google’s “find business near” option is pretty pathetic.

    Search for ‘museums’ by Brookland, and you get Franklin County Museum in Franklin, NE. Like, on Franklin St, NE. Great, Google, just great. But the merger with WMATA is smart.
