Transit Near Me

December 13, 2011

December 13, 2011 -- Have you ever been in an unfamiliar part of town and don't know the best way to get around? Now, a new web application called Transit Near Me [broken link removed March 25, 2015] provides an easy solution! Transit Near Me gives an overview of all the transit options located near you and where they go. It includes information for ART, Metrobus and Metrorail.

The application is very user-friendly [broken link removed March 25, 2015]. Double-click or double-tap in an open area of the map to center your "circle" on that spot and see all the transit services which stop inside the circle. Zoom out to see all the places those transit services go. Click on an individual stop to see which lines serve it or click on an individual line to see where it goes.

Transit Near Me was developed by the Mobility Lab Tech Transit Initiative, a project in the Washington DC area to foster collaboration among software developers and create tools that help people better understand their transit options. 

Try out this new web tool and let us know what you think!
