Washington Metro System May 21, 2010
This very convenient and reliable system of bus, train, and subway serves all of Washington, D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia. The system is laid out in five lines, each its own color, that run into downtown and create a circle so that transfers are minimal and easy. You can purchase tickets, day passes, and Farecards at any station. Fares are not expensive for the size of the system. And if you need help, there are plenty of staff to assist and answer questions.
We left our car at the hotel in Alexandria and took a bus from the bus stop only a short walk. That took us to the train station which took us into Washington and became the subway as we got into town. We found the buses to be on time and the train station to be clean and helpful and we were amazed at the subway system. It was very clean, felt safe, and well lighted. We would not hesitate to use this great public transportation again!
