Glitches Hit Metrobus Tracking System, Foggy Bottom Fare Gates

WASHINGTON — The busETA prediction system Metrobus riders use to figure out when to go to a bus stop or how long they will be waiting experienced technical issues Friday.

At noon, the system was only displaying schedule data, rather than real-time GPS information and arrival predictions. The busETA system replaced Nextbus earlier this year.

Metro spokesman Richard Jordan did not know when the issue would be resolved.

He said an issue at the Foggy Bottom Metro Station where fare gates were not allowing rail riders in or out of the system appears to be a separate, unrelated problem.

Metro maintenance workers had begun working to address that glitch, which appeared confined to just the single station.

Jordan said the fare gates were expected to be fixed quickly.
