Getting There

Metro/Bus and Rail

Metro is preparing to be the transportation mode of choice for hundreds of thousands of visitors on Inauguration Day 2013.

On Inauguration Day:

  • Metrorail will open at 4 am and close at 2 am.
  • Metrorail will provide 17 consecutive hours of rush-hour service -- from 4 am until 9 pm. Peak fares will be in effect during that time.
  • Normal weekday parking rates will apply at Metrorail parking facilities. Parking fees will be charged as you exit the garage and may be paid by SmarTrip® or credit card.
  • Metrobus will operate weekday rush hour service in the morning, followed by an early rush hour in the afternoon. Many routes will operate on detours due to Inaugural events.
  • MetroAccess will operate identical hours to Metrorail and Metrobus. MetroAccess customers are encouraged to plan extra time due to increased traffic throughout the service area.
