See how long it takes to get from each Metro station to the downtown core

Transit By DW Rowlands (Contributor) January 30, 2017   39

A map of the travel time from Metro Center to each Metrorail station, based on Metro's online trip planner. Image by the author.

Like most American rail transit systems, Metrorail is arranged in a way that sends most trips toward a cluster of downtown stations where the lines converge. I made a map to show how long it takes to travel from each station to the system's downtown core.

In designing my map, I was inspired by this map of the Boston T created by Peter Dunn. However, the geometry of Metro is rather more complicated than the T, which is centered on a ring of four adjacent transfer stations and has no line crossings outside this ring.

Ridership data from PlanItMetro shows that the most common destinations for morning peak Metro rides are Metro Center and the Farragut stations, and the highest-ridership parts of the system seem to be the Red Line and the combined Orange/Blue/Silver line through downtown. Based on this, I decided to treat Metro Center as the system’s hub.

Each station's distance from Metro Center indicates the average travel time to that station, including transfers.

The four lines that pass through Metro Center show fairly simple radial patterns. It takes longer to get from stops on the Green and Yellow line to Metro Center than the physical distance between them because, to make the trip, passengers have to transfer.

That's why the line zigs and zags on the map, or, more specifically, why Archives is significantly farther from the center of the map than either L’Enfant Plaza or Gallery Place, and Georgia Avenue-Petworth is farther from the center than Fort Totten.

Likewise, the nearly five-minute gap between King Street and Eisenhower Avenue is significantly longer than the travel time between these stations. It is due to the fact that one can reach King Street and the stations north of it via the Blue Line from Metro Center without a transfer, but Eisenhower Avenue and Huntington require a transfer to reach from Metro Center.

Do you see anything interesting when you look at this map?

Moscow Metro

Moscow Metro

Opened in 1935 under Stalin, the Moscow Metro is one of the largest networks in the world and a tourist attraction in itself. Discover how to get around on it!

Designed to be " palaces of the people ", the different stations of Moscow's metro are spectacular examples of Socialist Realist art and architecture. Aside from providing fascinating insight into the city's history, the metro network is also an  efficient and economical way to get around the Russian capital .

Operating times & frequency

The Metro Moscow operates daily between  5:30 am and 1 am , with trains departing every 1 to 3 minutes during peak times. Outside of rush hour, trains are less frequent, every 4 to 7 minutes depending on the line and the time of day.

Ticket prices

The price of a single ticket for the Moscow Metro is 55 Roubles . Single tickets allow you to change trains as many times as you like, with no limit on distance or time. To buy tickets, you may struggle to find English speaking staff, however you should be to communicate the number of tickets you need by holding up your fingers, and thankfully most stations now have simple automated machines that you can use too. 

There are often long queues to buy tickets, so if you're planning to travel by metro a lot, we recommend buying multi-ride tickets to save time and money. You'll get a paper card which you tap on the reader to go through the turnstile.

You can buy a daily ticket for ₽ 230 ( US$ 2.60) or a 3-day ticket for ₽ 438 ( US$ 4.90).

Metro lines

Moscow Metro has 17 lines  with a total length of 246 miles (397 km) divided into more than  230 stations  (265 if we include the Moscow Central Circle). Each line is identified by a name, a number and a colour.

Guided tour of the Moscow Metro

Moscow's metro network is a museum in itself, and it's a must-see attraction on any trip to the Russian capital. The long marble corridors, fascinating Soviet-themed frescoes and gilded sculptures are truly captivating. To make the most of your visit and learn all about the symbolism and history behind some of the city's main metro stations, why not explore the network with an expert English-speaking guide? Take a look at our Guided Tour of the Moscow Metro to find out more!

A curious detail about the Moscow metro lies in the announcements on the trains. Unless you speak Russian, you probably won't understand the content of the voiceovers, however, you may note something interesting: trains heading into the city have male voiced announcements, and trains heading out of the city have female voiced announcements!

DDOT Announces the Start of Phase Two of The Automated Bus Enforcement for the Clear Lanes Program

(WASHINGTON, DC) — Today, the District Department of Transportation (DDOT) announces that ticketing for Phase 2 of the Clear Lanes program will begin on January 29, 2024. Clear Lanes, in partnership with Metro, aims to improve bus travel times and enhance bus stop safety and accessibility by using cameras mounted on Metrobuses to identify vehicles illegally operating, parking, standing, or stopping in dedicated bus lanes and bus zones. Photos of violating vehicles are sent to DDOT, which will verify a qualifying offense.

Starting on January 29, 2024, Phase 2 enforcement begins, in which drivers illegally driving, parking, standing, or stopping in a bus lane (areas marked by red paint and signage) may receive a $100 fine. Phase 1 began November 15, 2023, in which drivers illegally parking, standing, or stopping in a bus zone (area around a bus stop) may receive a $100 fine.

“We are excited about the start of the second phase of this program,” said Interim DDOT Director Sharon Kershbaum. “Our goal with the Clear Lanes program is to demonstrate our commitment to strengthening our transportation network and helping residents who use public transportation get across the city faster and more efficiently.”

DDOT offers the following guidance about bus lanes and zones:

Bus zones are areas along the curb within 80 feet of the approach side and 20 feet of the departure side of a bus stop flag, unless otherwise signed. Unauthorized vehicles should not stop, stand, or park in a bus stop zone except to avoid conflict with other traffic.

Authorized vehicles include the following:

  • Public transit buses and school buses; and
  • Maintenance vehicles (DC or Metro vehicles that are actively making repairs).

Bus lanes are lanes of roadway designated for the use of public transit buses, typically marked by red paint and signage. Many bus lanes are active only at certain times of the day, as indicated by signage.

Unauthorized vehicles should not drive, stop, stand, or park in a bus lane or enter a bus lane except to:

  • Enter a legal parking space;
  • Pull over for emergency vehicles; or
  • Turn within 40 feet of an intersection or driveway (or as otherwise signed), as typically marked by signage or dashed red road markings.
  • Public transit buses, tour buses, school buses, and streetcars;
  • Bikes, e-bikes, and scooters;
  • Maintenance vehicles (DC or Metro vehicles that are actively making repairs);
  • Emergency vehicles (while responding to an emergency); and
  • Accessible transportation service vehicles (wheelchair-accessible vehicles registered with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Commission that are actively transporting someone with a disability).

Here's what awaits passengers on this metro Phoenix airport's new $28M concourse

metro travel times

No more portables .

Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is getting ready to debut its $28 million, 30,000-square-foot permanent terminal concourse, replacing a temporary four-gate concourse composed of portable buildings.

The new concourse, partly made possible by federal funding, will add five gates to the airport.

“It really creates an opportunity not only for efficiency but also increased capacity so that we could welcome additional airlines here and have adequate space so that they could operate efficiently,” airport executive director J. Brian O'Neill said of the terminal in a December interview with The Arizona Republic .

The soon-to-be-completed improvements will further enhance efficiency and the customer experience at the east Mesa airport, a former Air Force base that's now a reliever for Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. In recent years, the airport completed a new air traffic control tower and added new restaurants .

Bars, restaurants, parking, hotels: Ultimate guide to Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport

When will the new concourse at the Mesa airport open?

Airport staff plan to open the concourse on Feb. 20.

Also in February, Gateway Airport will debut an enclosed, climate-controlled area between ticketing and security, making it more comfortable for flyers to get from one side of the airport to the other.

What's in Phoenix Mesa Gateway Airport's new terminal concourse?

The concourse includes five gates, a grab-and-go market, a nursing room and seating areas equipped with power outlets for charging laptops and phones.

"There are so many phone charging stations here that you'll never go without," airport spokesman Ryan Smith said, adding that three things travelers expect at an airport are convenience, good places to eat and places to charge their phones.

Having new gates in a permanent structure will give the airport greater capacity to handle more flights at the same time, something that wasn't possible with the portable gates, Smith said. During the COVID-19 pandemic, only one or two gates in the portable structure could safely operate at a time.

The grab-and-go market, First Jet Market, will feature items from local chef Aaron Chamberlin of the metro Phoenix restaurants Oak on Camelback and Ghost Ranch. There's no space for additional restaurants or retail in the concourse, but Smith said it might feature a pop-up bar serving drinks like piña coladas.

There are outdoor spaces where people can relax before their flights, plus a pet relief area. When the concourse opens, Macayo's Mexican Food near Gate 5 will open an outdoor seating area.

How are the gates numbered at the Mesa airport?

The gates in the former portable buildings were numbered 1-4, while the gates in the main concourse are 5-10.

The new five-gate concourse replacing the four-gate portables also has gates numbered 1-4. The fifth gate bears a curious name: Gate 1A.

The reason is simple: continuity with the existing gate numbering, Smith said.

"It was easier and more affordable to add a 1A to the new concourse and maintain the existing gates 5-10," he said.

Why Mesa Gateway Airport needed a new concourse

Passenger growth at Gateway Airport and residential and commercial growth in the East Valley meant airport staff needed more infrastructure to support the growth.

The airport reported record growth in the 2022-23 fiscal year that started in July 2022 and ended June 2023, with more than 1.9 million people arriving and departing. Gateway Airport welcomed about 100,000 more passengers than 2021-22, marking a 6% increase.

In December 2024, O'Neill stated in his monthly Executive Director's Report that Gateway Airport had its busiest October on record in 2023, with 165,886 passengers that month.

How much did the Mesa airport's new concourse cost?

The new concourse cost $28 million, including a $14.4 million grant from the federal Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Gateway Airport also received $7 million in state funding and $6 million from a Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program grant.

The rest of the money came from local airport funds and contributions from regional partners, Smith said.

One fewer partner: Phoenix is ending its Mesa Gateway airport partnership. What that means for flyers

Navigating Washington, DC with Metro

Find out everything you need to know to ride dc’s world-class metrorail system, get a metro map, check operating hours, ride fares and more..

Washington, DC’s Metro   is one of the busiest public transportation systems in the country. Its expansive network of tunnels and above ground tracks connect all four quadrants of DC with suburban Virginia and Maryland. The system is heavily used by local commuters and it’s a popular, convenient and affordable way for visitors to DC to get around the region, now so more than ever. Metro has opened its new Silver Line extension, which allows riders to connect to Dulles International Airport and explore Loudoun County. Visit Metro's website for more information about the extension.

Washington, DC Metro Map

How does the Washington, DC Metro work? How do I plan my trip? 

The Metro consists of six color-coded lines: Red, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Green and Silver. The lines are connected to each other via transfer stations and many Metro stops are serviced by more than one color. Each train car has an exterior electronic sign that marks the color and the direction of the train. Direction is indicated by the final station of that line.

Popular sightseeing Metro stops include the Smithsonian (Orange, Silver and Blue lines), Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan (Red line) and Gallery Place-Chinatown (Red, Green and Yellow lines). You can plan your trip and find the best route using Metro's Trip Planner .

Worried about internet connectivity while traveling on Metro? Currently, most Metro stations have free Wi-Fi .

How much are Metro fares and how do you use SmarTrip?

Metro fares are calculated by how many stops you travel and vary during peak and off-peak hours. During peak hours, most fares range from $2.25 to $6 per trip. During off-peak hours, fares typically range from $1.85 to $3.85. 

Metro riders must pay via  SmarTrip card  or the  SmarTrip app on  iPhone and Apple Watch . SmarTrip cards are plastic, rechargeable fare cards that can be purchased by cash or credit at any Metro station or in advance on  wmata.com . You can calculate your fare between two stops using Metro’s  Trip Planner .

The SmarTrip app can be used anywhere the SmarTrip card is accepted, including rail, buses and Metro-operated parking lots. Metro is the first rail system in the U.S. to offer a full-service, touch-free payment option at every single stop. See below for more information about how to use SmarTrip in your Apple Wallet .

What are the Metro's hours and when does it close?

DC Metro trains run Monday - Thursday, 5 a.m. until 12 a.m.; Friday, 5 a.m. until 1 a.m.; Saturday: 7 a.m. until 1 a.m.; Sunday: 7 a.m. until 12 a.m.

Metro etiquette

The Washington, DC Metro serves thousands of commuters and visitors each day. Because the train system is so heavily used by busy local commuters, there are a number of unspoken rules that visitors should be aware of. If possible, you may want to ride at off-peak hours when the train system is much less hectic.

When riding the escalator, stand to your right, walk to your left. Standing in a twosome that blocks the left side is strongly (and often loudly) discouraged by your fellow Metro riders.

When waiting to board a train, let riders exit the train first before trying to board. If the train is particularly crowded and you are standing in a doorway, step just outside the train doorway to allow your fellow riders room to exit.

Another important note if the train is crowded: move to the middle of the car so others can board. You will have time to exit when you arrive at your stop.

During peak hours, trains arrive often. Don’t try to board a train that is too full. The automatic doors are very sensitive and if they can’t close, the train operator may offload the entire train because a door stopped working.

Each car usually has several seats for handicapped riders. Please don’t use these seats if there is a rider that needs to sit down.

Be sure and have your SmarTrip card out and ready to swipe when you go through the gate. Riders move through quickly and holding up the line is discouraged.

While the Metro can be a very busy place, most of your fellow riders are friendly and will point you in the right direction. There is also a station manager at each station. Don’t be afraid to ask if you have questions about navigating the Metro!

Now that you have read up on the Metrorail experience, learn about other ways to navigate DC. Check out the best transportation options  for getting around the District.

Storm Isha is about to batter the UK with devastating ‘danger to life’ 85mph winds and torrential rain .

Multiple weather warnings have been issued across the entire country with alarming satellite footage showing the storm hurtling full steam ahead across the Atlantic.

The brutal weather front formed off the east coast of the US and is sweeping in towards Britain’s west coast .

Brutal conditions will wreak havoc with four days of misery on the cards , according to forecasters.

Follow Metro.co.uk’s live blog for the latest Storm Isha updates

Here’s a look at where and when the storm will hit and the different Met Office weather warnings that are in place.

Where will Storm Isha hit?

In short, the whole of the UK is going to suffer the wrath of Isha. But some areas will of course be more severely affected than others.

Three severe amber weather warnings for wind have been issued.

Two in effect today stretch across most of the UK, sparing only London and parts of the South East. An amber alert for Scotland, in particular, says the nation will face the worst of the winds.

Yellow warnings for rain and wind cover the whole of Britain.

Weather map 21.01

When is Storm Isha due?

The first effects of Storm Isha were felt in the early hours of Sunday morning as rain and wind warnings came into effect.

Here’s a look at what time and which regions are affected. Strap in, because there are a lot of weather warnings in place (eight from Sunday onwards).

  • Amber wind warning for all of England: 6pm today to 6am on Monday
  • Amber wind warning for Scotland, northern England, Northern Ireland: 6pm today to 6am on Monday
  • Yellow rain warning for northern England: Midnight today to 6am on Monday
  • Yellow rain warning for Wales: 6am today to 6am on Monday
  • Yellow wind warning for whole of the UK: Noon today until noon on Monday
  • Yellow rain warning for Scotland: 3pm today to 11.59pm tonight

Strong winds and rain for New Year's Eve, Wimbledon, London, UK - 31 Dec 2023

Is Storm Isha dangerous?

For areas covered by the amber wind alerts, the Met Office has warned that flying debris could result in a danger to life.

Damage to buildings and homes is possible, with roofs blown off and power lines brought down, it says.

Roads, bridges and railway lines may close, with delays and cancellations to bus, train, ferry services and flights.

Power cuts could occur and affect other services, such as mobile phone coverage, while there is potential for large waves and beach material being thrown onto sea fronts, coastal roads and properties.

Areas affected by yellow weather warnings could see flooding to some homes and businesses while power supplies are likely to be brought down.

Driving conditions are expected to be difficult across the UK due to spray and flooding on the roads.

What has the Met Office said?

The Met Office has said the entire country can expect strong winds on Sunday, while certain areas will have the double whammy of rain. 

‘Amber and yellow severe weather warnings have been issued as Storm Isha approaches the UK on Sunday, in what will be a widely windy day for the UK,’ a spokesman said. 

‘Many places are likely to see gusts of 50-60mph, even inland. Near coasts there will be widespread gusts of 60-70mph, possibly reaching 80 mph in a few places.’

Chief meteorologist Dan Suri said: ‘The areas of particular concern are reflected by a large amber severe weather warning which covers Northern Ireland, central and southern Scotland, Wales, much of northern England as well as south-western parts of England.

‘In these regions we could see gusts frequently between 50-60mph and even up to 80mph in exposed coastal locations. 

‘As the storm starts to move away on Monday morning very strong winds will also develop in the far south-east of England, bringing the risk of 70-80mph gusts here too in the early hours of Monday morning.

‘Storm Isha will bring a disruptive spell of weather to the UK with strong winds across the whole country. Heavy rain will cause additional hazards, particularly in the west. 

‘A number of severe weather warnings for rain have also been issued. Keep up to date with the Met Office warnings and pay close attention to guidance from your local authority.’
