Like many major US Cities, Washington DC has a Public Transportation System like no other. Known for its fairly clean “no eating and no drinking” policy, the Metro Rails and Bus systems are safe and clean. Spanning over the DMV area (Disrict of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia), the Metro Rail system is an efficient way of getting to either of the three airports (BWI, IAD, DCA) and all major federal buildings and monuments.
The American Guest House Bed and Breakfast is a Washington DC Hotel that is always giving our guests the best of up-to-date information on DC commuting, events, fine dining and more! If you are looking to visit Washington DC soon, please visit our website for more reservation information. We are located right off the Red-Line, DuPont Circle Metro Station.
Even for our tourists and locals whom many have vehicles to commute, the Washington Metropolitan Association Transit Authority (WMATA) has several modes of transportation to accommodate your commute within a 20-mile radius of the White House.
Purchasing a Washington DC Metro Card is always a safe bet for even short term commuter. You can pick up a card at any CVS for $10 with $5 in fare usage preloaded. Just tap your pass at any metro rail/bus entrance and access is validated based on your balance. Only one passenger per card is allowed. Paper Fares are only permissible on the Metro Rail, not the Metro Bus.
