When Metro closes a station or takes passengers off a train because of an emergency, frustrated riders often are left on their own to figure out how to make it to their destinations. Want to figure out how far the nearest rail station is and how long it will take to walk there? Or bus information near the station? Fuhgeddaboudit. Finally, after years of pleas from riders, Metro is beginning to create site-specific maps with that kind of information. Better yet, these are maps that customers can take with them.
