Metro to Hit the Pause Button on Next Bus Real-Time Information System

 

On Wednesday, October 31, Metro will pause its Next Bus information program, which provides real-time customer information for determining when the next Metrobus arrives at a bus stop.

 

The decision to pause the Next Bus program was based on the low accuracy levels of the system, currently operating on 32 Metrobus routes throughout the District of Columbia, suburban Maryland and northern Virginia. The system is accurate about 80 percent of the time in its predictions. Metro requires accuracy to be at 95 percent before expanding the program to all bus routes.
