Metro Travel Tips: Riding the Metro is an easy and convenient way to get around DC. If this your first Metro trip, here are a few tips to remember:

  1. When taking the escalator, remember Stand to the right, walk to the left. It’s an unspoken rule on the Metro that riders will keep the left side of the escalator clear for those that want to pass, especially during rush hour!
  2. Rush hour for Metro is from 5-9:30 a.m. and 3-7 p.m. Please keep in mind the Metro is very crowded during these hours.
  3. If you are using a farecard to enter the station: insert the card into the slot on the right of the entrance gate and the yellow gates will open. Your farecard will pop up on your right above the yellow gates. Take your card and continue through the gate. If you’re using a SmarTrip® card, swipe your card on the magnetic circle on the top right of the gate.
  4. The Metro doors do not have sensors like an elevator!! When you hear a chime and the Metro conductor says the doors are closing, do not try to squeeze on a crowded train. The doors may close on you. When this happens, the Metro conductor may choose to unload the whole train. It is always best to simply wait for the next train and board safely.
  5. Be sure and use Metro’s Rider Tools to help you navigate the Metrorail and Metrobus. Metro’s Rider Tools, available online including mobile devices, offer real-time arrival information and other helpful tips.
