If you are coming to DC for leisure or business and need to ride the metro, you may want to know which kind of passes are available.
All Metrorail passes are gate-activated. The faregate activates the pass the first time it is used and prints the last valid date on the pass. Trip values are subtracted from the farecard upon exiting the station.
