The Metro (Washington Metro) light rail/subway system — the Red line in this case. (In the Metro rail system, each train line is assigned a colour — Orange, Blue, Green, and so on. That beats the New York MTA subway system's maze of letters and numbers.)
Is it morning yet? Waiting to board a BoltBus for the 4.5 hour ride to Union Station in Washington, D.C., and from there to Reston, Virginia.
BoltBus is one of a number of private bus lines that offer direct service to Washington, D.C. and other key cities in the Northeastern U.S. Usually an advance reservation online guarantees a seat for as little as USD $20 to $25 each way (it depends on when you book your trip).
