The Washington Metro region provides many convenient ways for people to arrive and move about town. Many of the main attractions are located near one another, making the Nation’s Capital an extremely walkable city. Many other low-cost options are available for getting around faster including three major airports; public transit by subway, bus or train; and easy to grab taxis, carsharing or bikesharing services. There are also “tour bus” style services available.
