Tickets are free, but you pay a nominal ($1.00 or so per ticket) fee for reserving online. Well worth it so that you don't have to get up at the crack of dawn to get in line for tickets!
Jul 17th 2011 1:09AM I've been to DC more than a dozen times and have used public transportation in other major cities as well. The DC Metro is by far the cleanest, easiest system I've ever come across. We don't even bother bringing a car to DC anymore; we hop a train in New England to Union Station in DC and use the Metro for everything while we're visiting the city. In the rare case when we have trouble navigating the system, Metro staff have always been glad to help us out. Ignore the article. If you can read, you can easily figure out the DC Metro.
