40th Anniversary March & Related Events


Getting there from within the Washington Metropolitan area.

When a gathering like the 40th Anniversary March occurs in Washington, DC, traffic near the National Mall comes to a standstill.  To avoid these problems, we strongly suggest you consider using Metrorail.  If you'll be traveling by car, consider parking at a Metrorail station that has parking facilities then catching a train to the festivities.   Parking at Metro-operated lots is FREE on weekends and federal holidays.

The closest Metrorail stations to the Lincoln Memorial are Arlington Cemetery and Foggy Bottom / GWU.  Both are within walking distance.:

Arlington Cemetery Metro Station [  MapInfo ] located at Memorial and Eisenhower Drives, Arlington, VA, is  across the Memorial Bridge from March site  and less than a mile walk.  The station is served by Metro's Blue line.  
Foggy Bottom / GWU Metro StationMapInfo ], located at 2300 Eye Street, NW, is ten blocks north of the Memorial.  The station is served by  Metro's Blue & Orange  lines.  


Getting there from outside the Washington Metropolitan area

By Car:

Depending on the direction you traveling to DC, you'll have significant options to connect with the Metrorail system that will provide you with safe and secure parking (see above) facilities.  There are several Internet based mapping services ( Yahoo Maps | Mapquest | Maps.com | Expedia.com ) that will provide you with the tools required.

By Bus:

Again, connecting with the Metrorail system will provide your group with easy access to the March.  There are two Metrorail stations that provide free bus parking on weekends.  Both are located close to route 495 (Washington's Beltway) provide easy access:

Greenbelt Metrorail Station [ Map | Info ], located in Greenbelt, on the northern side will service buses traveling from the northeast and north-central states.  The station is served by Metro's Green line that will take you to L'Enfant Plaza station where you can transfer, on the lower level, to either the Blue or Orange lines that will take you to the March.  One-way fare is $2.20 and it is suggested that you purchase a round-trip ticket when you first enter the station.
Branch Avenue Metrorail Station [ Map | Info ], located in Suitland,  on the southern side will service buses traveling from the southeast and south-central states.  The station is served by Metro's Green line that will take you to L'Enfant Plaza station where you can transfer, on the lower level, to either the Blue or Orange lines that will take you to the March. One-way fare is $2.20 and it is suggested that you purchase a round-trip ticket when you first enter the station.
