WMATA, Are You Listening?

Heads up, Metro, this one sounds like something you’d definitely want to get working on right now:

Today, we are happy and proud to tell you that their efforts have resulted in a new Google Labs experiment: Google Transit Trip Planner. With it, commuters will be able to easily access public transit schedules, routes, and plan trips using their local public transportation options. This first release covers only the Portland, Oregon metro area, but we are working to expand our coverage very soon. (If you’re from a local transit agency interested in being included in Google Transit, we would love to speak with you. Just write to us.)

I’d love to see The Ride Guide replaced with some sweet Google lovin’, if you know what I mean. C’mon Metro, step up, this would be awesome!

    StationMasters is a great support site that goes above and beyond WMATA‘s weak offerings.

    I’ve found HopStop to be useful more than once; but keep in mind it’s still in Beta for the DC area.
