Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

Real time WMATA subway information

I know that WMATA does a bunch of feeds for PDAs, but I don't use a PDA. While at the Regional Bus Transit conference yesterday, I learned that the feeds to the signs that we see in the subway stations are also available online.
Union Station information displays

1. On the homepage, pick maps and stations, the first tab on the left hand of the screen.
2. Then pick "Find a stop/station."
3. Choose a station, such as Union Station.
4. On the screen, click on this text: Next Train Arrival.
5. And you'll get the information for the next three trains.

Thank you to Fred Candelaria of WMATA for showing me this!
