Know the Details
If your destination is on a Metro line beyond Pentagon, travel to Pentagon Metro Station using the options listed below or via a shuttle and then continue your trip. You can also watch our location-specific webinar recordings for comprehensive commute options.
Free shuttle buses
Shuttle service is free to replace rail service. Express direct shuttles will be available to the Pentagon from Franconia-Springfield Metro Station and from Huntington Metro Station.
Local shuttles will replace Metrorail in the affected area. Shuttle buses will run every five minutes during rush hours and every 10 minutes midday, except the Blue Line Shuttle, which will run every 10-12 minutes during midday. The Blue Line Shuttle will not stop at Braddock Road Metro. The Yellow Line Shuttle will not stop at Reagan National Airport.
Free metro station parking
WMATA is offering free parking at Huntington, Van Dorn, and Franconia-Springfield Metro Stations during the Platform Improvement Project shutdown. This will make connecting to other transit options easier from these stations.
Join or form a vanpool and use your commuter benefits to offset the cost of parking and leasing a van, and avoid paying tolls.
