METRO INFORMATION:
Information Source
"Driving is not recommended. Parking will be limited and there will be road closures to accommodate the crowds and parade so visitors are recommended to walk, bike and use the Metro. The Metro will be operating with extended hours on Inauguration Day, opening at 4 a.m. with near rush-hour service levels on all lines until 9 p.m. There is no track work planned for inauguration weekend.

Please note the following Metro station closures, which are subject to change:

Smithsonian (Orange, Silver and Blue lines) and Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter (Green and Yellow lines) will be closed on Inauguration Day throughout the event;

Federal Triangle (Orange, Silver and Blue lines) and Mt Vernon Sq 7th St-Convention Center (Green and Yellow lines) will be closed for the 24 hours of inauguration.

If you are using a ride sharing app such as Uber or Lyft, there will be a geofence around the security perimeter, meaning the apps will not work inside it. Attendees using the services will have to leave the perimeter to get picked up.

Beginning in mid-December and while supplies last, Metro will offer a limited edition SmarTrip® card commemorating the inauguration. The $10 card (a 30% savings) will come pre-loaded with a one-day pass valid for unlimited Metrorail and Metrobus rides on Inauguration Day; the card is valid before and after Jan. 20, 2017 by adding value online at wmata.com or at any Metrorail station."

SECURITY & MISC. INFO:

"Presidential inaugurations are a festive experience, though as with any event of this size, being prepared will make it smoother and more enjoyable. Be sure to check advisories ahead of time and consider the following:

It is cold in January in Washington, DC. Dress warmly and wear comfortable shoes.

Thousands of portable toilets are brought into National Mall and in front of Metro Stations for the event. Bring your own water and snacks or purchase some from hot dogs and pretzel stands. The Smithsonian museums lining the National Mall also have dining options (and bathrooms), or head into Cascade Café at the National Gallery of Art for espresso coffee and cake.

If you’re a ticket holder to any event you will have to pass through security screening. Make sure you bring photo ID and check the list of prohibited items ahead of time. "
