Thanks to the Post’s Rob Pegoraro for the tip that live train information is available on Metro’s Web site. This is great news for those who live near Metro stations. I know that it takes me about 7 minutes to walk to the station; I can time my arrival accordingly.
I discovered train information on the mobile site a few months ago. It’s possible that the information has been up on the Web all the time, but buried. There’s a big promo for the next bus on the Metro home page, but you have to dig deep to find train information. Click on your station from the list, and read down the page and find the link for “Next train arrival”. The information appears in a pop up.
If you right click on the pop up, you should be able to bookmark your station.
To any readers from Google: now that you have Metro stations on your Maps, please add this information as a hover.
