D.C. Streetcar, Circulator, Capital Bikeshare: What you need to know for Inauguration Day

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - The 58th Presidential Inauguration is expected to significantly impact all forms of travel and increase congestion across the nation’s capital.

The District Department of Transportation announced the following operation schedules for D.C. Streetcar, the D.C. Circulator and Capital Bikeshare.

D.C. Streetcar
This year marks the first time the system will be in service during an Inauguration ceremony. The system will open at 4 a.m. on Inauguration Day, and close at 2 a.m., Saturday, January 21.

For charter bus passengers using Inauguration Day parking at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium (RFK), D.C. Streetcar is accessible from Lot 6. Visitors can board at the Oklahoma Avenue and Benning Road NE stop, which is less than a mile from the stadium.

The D.C. Streetcar line runs to Union Station, which is a short walk from the National Mall and the Parade Route. It is currently free service.

D.C. Circulator
D.C. Circulator will suspend service on the following four routes on Inauguration Day: Union Station-Navy Yard, National Mall, DuPont Circle-Georgetown-Rosslyn and Georgetown-Union Station.

The other two routes, Woodley Park-Adams Morgan-McPherson Square will operate from 7 am to 3:30 pm; and Potomac Avenue Metro-Skyland via Barracks Row will operate from 6 am to 7 pm.
