    Let people get off the train before attempting to board. You are not more important than they.

  • Katya L.

    Move to the center of the train, seriously.

    If it's outside normal rush hour traffic, you'll probably be waiting a while.

    Drew Hulburt · February 17, 2011
  • Andrew L.

    For quick access to the Blue & Orange lines board the Red line train in the car closest to the center

    Please remember to take all your belongings when leaving... Otherwise Metro employees will think your stuff is a bomb and stop service to check it!

    Dont lean against the pole with your whole body so that no one else can hold it except awkwardly above your head

    Grace Baker · February 21, 2012
  • Evan G.

    Walk fast during rush hour, even if you're not in a hurry. It's just polite and people appreciate it.

    If a person in front of you is standing on the left, etiquette calls for a drop-shoulder shove to push them forcefully out of your way.

    Brian Gluckman · January 7, 2012
  • Michael G.

    This is the HEART of the Metro Rail. Where you come to buy smart trips and flash passes and more

    To arrive in front of the elevator at the Bethesda station, board the Shady Grove-bound train at Metro Center at the center or rear door of the front car. Very useful during rush hour.

    Donald W. · January 27, 2011
  • Katya L.

    Don't lean on the poles in the train. Hold on with one hand.

    Katya Lysaught · July 9, 2010
  • Corrie D.

    Seriously? Don't let your kids sit on the escalator stairs on the way down (or up). It's not cute, it's dangerous. And it puts them all up in my way as I hustle to catch the trains!

    Corrie Davidson · July 25, 2012

    Orange/Blue: On VA-bound trains, use the front for Grosvenor / Shady Grove Red trains and the rear for Glenmont / Silver Spring Red trains. Reverse for trains from VA. Doors open on the left.

  • Will S.

    Keep your junk off the seat beside you. Someone else may want to sit down.

    Will Saunders · September 12, 2011
  • Terence R.

    If you are carrying a large bag (backpack. etc.), remove it so you don't hit people inadvertently.

    Terence Rose · November 20, 2012
  • Jeff Q.

    On escalators, stand on the right and walk on the left.

    Red: Use the middle doors for an easy transfer down to the Orange/Blue lines. Doors open on the right.

  • Kristen W.

    Stand to the right and walk to the left, people!

    Kristen Warms · April 11, 2012
  • Jeff Q.

    If you're going to a Caps game (or other Verizon event) during rush hour, its easier and faster to walk from here, don't bother transferring to the Green Line.

    Jeff Quinton · February 8, 2012
  • John M.

    Learn about the elevator doors. They're not like elevator doors you MIGHT be familiar with!

    John McCarthy · September 26, 2010

    While waiting for the train give people some space, I dont know you like that, roll up off me.

    William Kelly · January 13, 2012
  • Maggie D.

    WALK LEFT, STAND RIGHT. Don't block the whole escalator with your suitcases and make others miss their trains!!!

    Please move to the center of the train upon entering the car or risk causing an accident unnecessarily. If ur getting off soon...don't forget to get off the train to let others off. Be considerate!

    Clean stations here in DC

    If you're trying to go to Fedex field, start 3 hours early and you might make the second half. Hardly any trains on weekends.

    Craig P · July 30, 2011
  • Ulisse

    Please stand to right on escalators so people can pass. Also, hurry off trains. The doors automatically close after a period and you cannot block the doors open!

    Ulisse · April 21, 2011
  • Corinne C.

    When the escalators are down. Go through the Macy's!

    Dear Metro, you don't need to thank for my patient. I don't have it, I just can't do anything but stuck in the turnel. :P

  • Wesley R.

    it should b permitted that people that stand to the left excluding kids and elderly can be pushed out of the way

    Wesley R · December 12, 2010
  • Linz J.

    If there is a group of people behind you don't stop the second you get through the door if there is empty space in front of you. It's extremely annoying to have to weave around you.

    Linz Jax · June 13, 2013
  • Harjit

  • Allison W.

    To avoid waiting at this station just to go one stop, it's sometimes faster to just walk to Chinatown.

    Allison Whitcomb · December 28, 2011
  • Kyle S.

    Just walk up the escalater

    Kyle Suib · September 21, 2011
  • Daya T.

    Always project your trip by planning the car stops. Mine is the last so I'm the first on the escalator at I never miss a bus or have to think about pushing someone down te escalator either

    Daya Tennille · August 11, 2011
  • Dan R.

    The first door of the the third car aligns with the elevator bank at Forest Glen.

    Dan Rubin · July 19, 2011
  • Robert B.

    Watch out for tourist stopping at the top & bottom of the escalators!
