WMATA recently released “StationView,” which allows you to take an interactive virtual tour of stations on the Metro website. It will also be available on Google Maps. Riders can virtually move from the street into a station, “ride” down the escalator or elevator, and navigate through faregates and to different levels of platforms.

“StationView is an example of how we are creating new, innovative ways to better serve our customers,” said Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld in a press release. “This feature will make it easier for visitors, occasional riders, and people with special mobility needs, to plan their trip on Metro.”

Right now six stations are completed, but the agency expects to have all 91 stations mapped by the end of the year. Check it out:
