Updated My Arlington App Delivers "Push Of Information"
Published on November 03, 2016
Since its release in January, the My Arlington App has helped you stay on top of the County's events and news, provided alerts to traffic and Metro delays, and streamlined the search for permitting information. We took it further in August, adding real-time traffic data, voting maps and info, an easy-to-use County staff directory and more. Now we're unveiling the latest updates to My Arlington -- all part of the County's commitment to a more open and accessible government.
Today's My Arlington app has a fresh, new design, starting with the home screen. A tiled, customizable layout offers easier navigation.
Just in time for Election Day (Nov. 8), you can now use the My Arlington app to access information on Arlington voting, find your polling location and even view a map of Voter Precincts. (Remember, all polls are open 6 a.m. - 7 p.m.)
Staying ahead of your commute has never been easier with Transit Alerts from Metrobus, ART and VRE, and a Waze-powered Traffic Map and alerts from VDOT.
Transit Arrivals were added to show nearby bus stops and Metrorail schedules, all from the convenience of your smartphone.
An addition that is sure to make our friends happy at Bike Arlington, this version of My Arlington includes a map of Capital Bikeshare stations.
With over 80 stations in Arlington, Capital Bikeshare, part of the County's Transit Development Plan, allows short-term use of over 3500 bicycles across Washington, D.C., and Alexandria, VA and Montgomery County, MD, with the ability of returning it to any station. And with the My Arlington app on your phone, you'll always be connected to station updates.
You can use the My Arlington app to view Real Estate Sales, get information on Planning & Building permits, stay in-the-know with the latest news from both the County and Arlington Public Schools in one feed, and access a searchable Staff Directory.
The update also includes Info Popups, with tips and tricks to help you best utilize the app's new features.
The My Arlington App (version 2.1.2) is available for free download in both the App Store and Google Play.
