The Metro

The Washington, D.C. subway system is called Metro. The Mayflower is accessible via the Red Line, on the Farragut North metro stop. For more information visit Metro’s website. Metro operates seven days a week. Rail stations open at 5 am on weekdays, 7 am on Saturday, and 8 am Sunday. Metro closes at 11:30 pm on weekdays, 1 am Friday and Saturday, and 11 pm Sunday. When traveling late at night, be sure to check the scheduled departure time for the last metro train. At many stations, the last metro train departs before closing, so it is important that you allow enough time to enter the system and board the train. Last metro train departure times are posted at each station kiosk.
