Go to http://www.wmata.com to find the official site for Metro customer service. The front page of the site is designed for travelers who need to find transportation. The Trip Planner gives you the ability to move from one part of the city to the other using the Metro and bus system so you can plan when to leave and when you’ll arrive. There is also a Service Status section telling customers what lines are on-time or behind.
Customer Service Email
Do you have a question for Metro? You can send your question to the Metro customer service department using the online contact form http://www.wmata.com/about_metro/contact_us/ridercomment.cfm. This is the only means of contacting Metro by email listed on the website. There are internal email addresses within the transit authority, but none are used for general customer service contact.
The list of available options is long and rather confusing. Customers should listen carefully in order to select the correct department and avoid waiting on hold. We only waiting for approximately 3 minutes before a customer service department answered our call. The question on our mind was the hours of operation of the customer service department. The agent explained you can call the Metro phone number from 6 AM to 8:30 PM Monday to Friday and 7 AM to 8:30 PM Saturday and Sunday.
