6 reasons why the DC Metro disruptions aren’t so bad

May 31, 2016
    We get it, the DC Metro disruptions are going to suck for a lot of you.
    At Moovit, we understand how important it is for people to get from A to B during this time, and that’s why we’ll provide the latest information & best routes to make your journey smoother.
    The Metro disruptions shouldn’t disrupt your life, and in the spirit of looking on the bright side, we’ve come up with our top 6 reasons why they aren’t so bad:

    1. Explore the city 

    With summer almost upon us, fall in love with the city again by traveling around downtown DC on foot, bike or bus. This is certainly the best way to experience the city’s hidden treasures.

    2. Get your own way

    If you fancy working from home, dodging that birthday party your ex will be at, or trying to skip the latest RomCom your girlfriend wants to go to, the Metro disruptions are a great excuse to get your own way. 

    3. More me time

    Adjusting your work hours to avoid rush hour, means you will feel like you have more hours in the morning or evening — more reason to take that morning run, or to go to the happy hour after work.

    4. Enjoy your evenings

    Phone service can be pretty erratic while under ground. Send emails, order your groceries or buy that baby shower gift on your phone during your commute, so that you can use your evenings for more enjoyable things.

    5. Try something new

    Moovit is a firm believer of trying new things. With Bike Share & Uber on the app, you have more choice for your journey than ever before. If you are a first time bus rider, our Live Directions provide GPS style step-by-step directions so riding the bus is as easy as driving your car.

    6. Get something new

    It’s easy to get upset by these closures, but it’s important to keep the final goal in mind — to give you a safe and modernized Metro system.
    At Moovit, we believe riding is better together, so if you have a friend that could benefit from a smoother journey on public transit during this time, share this with them and let them buy you a coffee for the countless minutes you’ll save them throughout the year. Smooth travels!
