Doing Our Part

Doing Our Part with APTA Seal

Let's all do our part to keep the DC area moving
??


Around the world, throughout the country and in our community, the coronavirus is challenging us in ways we never could have anticipated. At Metro, we're responding with unprecedented action - taking steps to curtail the spread of the virus among riders and Metro employees. Our goal throughout our existence has always been to get you to your destination in a safe and timely manner. The events of the pandemic - and whatever the future may bring - have challenged but have not changed that mission.
