comments Leave a comment

(From a press release) Personal vehicles are restricted from traveling from Virginia into Washington on Inauguration Day. In order to get there, the Virginia Department of Rail and Public Transportation, Virginia State Police and Virginia Department of Transportation offer the following options:

  • Reserve a ticket on Virginia Railway Express (VRE) or Amtrak for service into Washington, D.C., and drive to the appropriate rail station

  • Drive to a Northern Virginia Metrorail station and take Metrorail into the city

  • Drive to a local bus stop that offers free service to Metrorail

  • Drive to a local bus stop that offers free shuttle service to a pedestrian bridge

  • Drive to a park-and-ride lot to be served by transit and take a shuttle bus to Metrorail

  • Hire a taxi or other for-hire vehicle for service into the city

  • Reserve a seat on a charter bus

Metrorail, Virginia Railway Express and Amtrak are the primary transportation choices for travel on that day, though many systems will have a modified schedule. All Virginia bus routes serving Metrorail stations will provide free service on Jan. 20. Bus service will be provided to Metrorail from designated park-and-ride lots in Northern Virginia. Motorists traveling to park-and-ride lots are encouraged to carpool.
