To facilitate transport orientation, there is a sign at each of the metro stations that show you the continuity of individual buses and trains. As far as the metro lines are concerned, the operation begins one week later than on weekdays.

On weekdays, the metro is in service from 5:00 to 24:00, therefore almost every day and runs every 8 to 11 minutes.

Buses

Other means of transport are buses with three types of bus lines – Local bus, Quick bus, Express bus, and Commuter bus. We strongly recommend Quick bus from our experience. It has low prices, buses are clean and most have wi-fi and TV.

Train transport

If you are going on a longer trip and do not want to be busy, we strongly recommend the train service. You can easily and quickly get to Washington D by train. The price for one starts at $ 17 and the maximum you can pay is $37.

Taxi

There is also a taxi in the city. You can call him only on the street or in the places where the taxi is usually standing. For us Europeans, it is a relatively inexpensive way of transport, and taxis are on every corner. However, it is important to arrange the price in advance, otherwise, you are at risk that your local taxi drivers will get you more money than you would like.

However, we recommend that you use the UBER application, where you have the first free coupon for free!
