Public Transportation

The District has many options for traveling throughout the city without ever needing to step into a car. Start with goDCgo’s Interactive Map for a quick overview of all the modes of transportation available for you to get around the city with ease.

METRO
Metro opens doors and gets you to most National Cherry Blossom Festival events. View Metrobus and Metrorail station maps on the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority website.

For a more enjoyable trip, take Metrorail during non-rush hours to the Smithsonian Station (Blue/Orange lines). Alternatively, the L’Enfant Plaza Station (Blue/Yellow/Green lines), 7th Street & Maryland Avenue exit, is only an extra 10-minute walk to the blossoms and much less crowded. To determine point-to-point directions and trip times, use Metro’s Trip Planner.

Customers are encouraged to use their SmarTrip® to receive a 25¢ discount per trip. Click here for Metrorail fares.
