Helpful Tips for January 20th!

  • You will absolutely need to use the metro to the events.
  • The metro starts running at 4 a.m. on Tuesday morning, and if you want to get to the mall with a chance to see one of the screens and not the person's head in front of you, you should be on the metro by 5 a.m.
  • The Archives-Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter Metrorail station (yellow and green lines) will be closed the entire day of the inauguration.
  • The Smithsonian stop (blue and orange line) will also be closed until 6:30 p.m.
  • The Mt Vernon Square/7th St-Convention Center Metrorail station on the Yellow and Green lines will close at 7:30 a.m.
  • Judiciary Square Metrorail station on the Red Line will close at 4 p.m.
  • The price of the one-day fare ticket will be $10 .
  • If you have a ticket to the inauguration, your best bet is to go to the Capitol South Metro Station (blue and orange line) or L'Enfant Plaza (yellow and green lines). If your ticketed seats are on the other side, the Judiciary Square (red line) or Union Station (red line) stops are best.
  • Federal Triangle (blue and orange line) and L'Enfant Plaza stops are all the most convenient for those looking for a spot on the Mall.
  • Metrobuses will be running starting at 6 a.m., but they have to deal with street closures. Stick with the metrorail system.
    Parking at the metro station closest to where you are staying will cost you $4.25.
