Connects to all the metro lines and near a lot of historical sites.
Red up blue/orange/silver down.
At 9 pm the crowd is mixed. The trains seem to run between 6-12 mins apart.
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.
You can see the station lights from Gallery Place when you look into the tunnels from the Red Line platforms.
Make sure you time the doors just right if you have kids in strollers. The doors show no mercy and will slam on you!
If the trains are crowded and you need to step off to let people out do so and stand next to the door so you csnnget back on. For those standing on the platform, leave room so they can do so.
One of the major hubs for Metro transfers between different subway lines.
Anyone else notice the trains stopping sounds like whale calls?
If you are carrying a large bag (backpack. etc.), remove it so you don't hit people inadvertently.
Block an impatient running person from getting on their train
Mind the gap.

Ne traversez jamais les voies!
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!
All stations are the same. Best station to get downtown
On escalators, stand on the right and walk on the left.
WALK LEFT, STAND RIGHT. Don't block the whole escalator with your suitcases and make others miss their trains!!!
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.
Red: Use the middle doors for an easy transfer down to the Orange/Blue lines. Doors open on the right.
We were warned this was very crowded. It didn't seem that crowded.
Metroing at night - especially close too the weekends - can be brutal. Expect longer waits than normal.
please be courtious of others and abide by the metro stations unwritten rules stand right walk left!
Stand to the right and walk to the left, people!
please bathe before riding...# thats all
Don't lean on the train doors... They chop you in half.
Dont lean against the pole with your whole body so that no one else can hold it except awkwardly above your head
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.
Stand on the right, walk on the left.
Trumpet guy is crazy concert hall good! TIP THAT MAN! He defiantly makes my day better
While waiting for the train give people some space, I dont know you like that, roll up off me.
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.
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!
To avoid waiting at this station just to go one stop, it's sometimes faster to just walk to Chinatown.
Delays delays delays
Wait. Metro is slow at off hours.
Make sure to look at a metro map ahead of time this place is crowded
Trying to catch a train after the orange line is delayed is nearly impossible
Please add another 15 mins to the recommended 30 mins Metro informs you to add to your commute time to compensate for delay due to weekend track maintenance.
The orange line gets crowded after 7 am
Just walk up the escalater
Keep your junk off the seat beside you. Someone else may want to sit down.
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!
Always project your trip by planning the car stops. Mine is the last so I'm the first on the escalator at Takoma...an I never miss a bus or have to think about pushing someone down te escalator either
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.
The first door of the the third car aligns with the elevator bank at Forest Glen.
Watch out for tourist stopping at the top & bottom of the escalators!
Please do not over crowd my train...please wait for the next over crowded one
Going to takoma? Wait for an 8-car train and walk all the way to the left of the glenmont platform. Guaranteed seat even during rush hour
