Transportation around Washington, D.C.

You are fortunate; you're attending college in one of the most transit-heavy cities in the U.S.!

There are multiple transportation options that let you go nearly anywhere in the city without relying on a car. Most of them are very affordable and are simple to figure out.

On the subpages for this tab, you'll find information on using:

  • MetroRail and MetroBus
    • The subway system, commonly known as the Metro.
    • Recommended: Look through the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) Web site
    • MetroBus is also administered by WMATA; see Metrobus section of WMATA site
  • Circulator
    • A $1 bus service that provides access to areas where MetroRail does not have any stations, such as Georgetown. This service is administered by the various Business Improvement Districts that lie along most routes, including Georgetown, Adams Morgan, Golden Triangle, and Waterfront/Southeast.
    • Recommended: See Circulator site
  • Free local shuttles
