Q: Washington, DC Metro FAQ

Below are the most common questions first time Metro riders have.

Q: How Late Does the Metro Operate?

A: The metro actually shuts down at midnight. In the mornings, the metro reopens at 5am on weekdays and 7am on weekends. For late night riders, be sure to arrive at the metro platform by 11:30pm at the latest, otherwise you will not be able to board.

Q: How Often Does the Metro Run (Arrive at Stations)?

A: The metro schedule varies somewhat depending on the time of the day. Typically riders can expect the metro to come every 15-20 minutes during off peak hours and during peak hours every 5 to 10 minutes.

Q: Can I Take the Metro to the Airport?

A: The Metro connects directly with the terminal at DCA, but does not connect directly with Dulles and BWI. In 2018 the Metro will connect directly with the Dulles airport. For now use the Silver line connector bus to get between the Dulles airport and the Reston Metro station. The bus ride is about 15 minutes and the Metro ride to downtown from Reston will take about 45 minutes. To get from BWI to Washington, DC use the MARC train that connects with the Metro and downtown DC at Union Station. Another option to get from BWI to Washington, DC is to use the Metrobus that will connect with the Greenbelt metro station. It will take about 30 minutes to ride into Washigton, DC from Greenbelt.

Q: How Much Does the Metro Cost?

A: The fares vary depending on the time of day and the distance. Depending on the distance fares start at $1.75 and can climb up to $5.90 for longer commutes. The Metros do not take cash, so you will need to purchase a SmarTrip card. You can either purchase a regular card for $8 ($2 for the card and preloaded with $8 for fares) or get a day pass for $14.50, which can be used an unlimited number of times until the end of the operating day.
