"Metro" D.C. Metro Tip by soccergrrl
D.C. Metro, Washington D.C.: 152 reviews and 175 photos
The Washington DC area has some of the worst traffic in the country. I highly recommend Metro, our subway system, for getting around downtown and to some of the close-in suburbs. It is easy to use and you can either pay by the trip or get a pass. Fares for by-the-trip travel are calculated from where you enter the system to where you exit it, and are higher during peak usage times (morning and evening commuter "rush hours"). Passes can be a good deal but aren't valid until after 9:30am. There are some unwritten "rules" on Metro (see my cultural tips), but the biggest written rule to follow is no eating or drinking on board. You'll find Metro cars and stations to be clean and pleasant.
