How to Buy a Washington DC Metro Subway Pass


Want to buy a Washington DC Metro Subway pass for your next trip? If so, this tourist information article is for you.

Things You'll Need

  • Credit card
  • To buy your Washington DC Metro pass, point your web browser to this page on Washington DC's subway system web site:

  • Choose the subway pass you'd like to buy and click "add to cart".

    You'll want a "metrorail" pass, which is the subway.

  • You can choose from:
    -1 day unlimited pass
    -7 day unlimited "short trip" pass (this is the cheaper of the 7 day subway passes and should be fine unless you plan to travel very far into the suburbs)
    -SmarTrip card (This card works like cash, so you pay for each trip separately. A good choice if you plan to travel to Washington DC again in the future or if you aren't taking many trips per day)

  • Once you pick your transportation pass, proceed to check out and buy it. Your pass will come in the mail.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can also buy bus passes, but the subway is much easier to use
  • If you fly into Reagan National Airport, after you buy your pass you can hop right onto the Metro from the airport.
