DC – There’s An App For That!

August 30, 2016

An unfamiliar DC can be intimidating to the most recent residents of ROSS’ apartments for college students, but it doesn’t have to be!

With these few familiar apps, new residents will not only soon be able to navigate like a veteran patron, but also be able to most perfectly utilize the small amounts of precious time not spent on their studies, enjoying all of the adventure DC has to offer.

DC Metro App

It comes as no surprise that the Metro Rail system is (and will continue to be) undergoing many much-needed repairs. They have done an excellent job of keeping lines open; however, as expected, these lines will be experiencing some delays. Always arrive on time to class or when meeting up with friends by downloading the DC Metro Rail app. This will keep you on top of delays, single tracking and closures.
