Apple Watch app is now included. Enjoy checking next arrivals on your Apple Watch! Force touch to access the favorite stations you have saved on your iPhone app with just one tap!

Thanks fellow Washingtonians for making NextTrain DC Metro the #1 downloaded DC Metro app on the App Store and for helping it break into the Top 10 Navigation Apps!

NextTrain DC Metro tells Washington DC metro train riders how many minutes are left until the next train comes.

NextTrain DC Metro works with all metro stations in the DC Metro area, and for trains in all directions.

Station names can be sorted alphabetically or according to distance from the user's location. Alphabetical sorted stations have a tappable index for quick access. Additional features include walking directions to any selected metro station and storage of favorite stations.

With this app, you will never be in a rush when not necessary. You can savour your last minutes drinking a coffee knowing that it isn't until 7 more minutes that the train will come.

Never wait for trains again. Just two iPhone screen touches will put all the information you need in front of you immediately.

App not working.


*** Update - changing my review until it's update. Used to be a great app but now the interface is broken and there doesn't appear to be much effort to fix it. I'll change the star rating again if someone fixes the app.

There appears to be a problem with the app interface and the website from which it pulls information (which appears to have been updated very recently). When I select a station in the app, I get a screen that links me to a WMATA page that tells me "Whoops this is awkward. You're looking for something that doesn't seem to exist. Try going to our [WMATA] search page."

When it's working the app is great. It's tied directly the ACTUAL train arrival information - the marquees on the platform if you will - rather than the website which tells you when trains are SUPPOSED to arrive. And if you know metro the scheduled arrival times are almost never correct.

Thanks for fixing the problem.

Is this ever going to be fixed?


Once upon a time this app worked well. Not anymore. It would have been nice if the thing worked during Safe Track but I guess that was too much to ask for. The paid version should at least work but no one seems to care that even basic functions don't work. I hope no one pays for this app until it works again.

Loved it BEFORE Metro changed interface


This was always my go to app to ride the DC Metro, because there were no bells and whistles. It was simple and had an Apple Watch component that worked beautifully.

Since Metro changed their website, it no longer interfaces with the data feeds necessary to tell us when the train is arriving.

We paid money for this app, and this is the thanks we get?
