Metro to Close 3 Station Lots for Charter Bus Parking on Inauguration Day

4 01 2009

If you were wondering where the thousands of buses expected to decend upon the DC area were going to park, now we know where at least some of them will go. WMATA is allowing buses to take over the parking lots at three stations in the area: Greenbelt and Morgan Boulevard Stations in Maryland, and Van Dorn Street Station in Virginia. A fourth, at the Minnesota Avenue Station, will be closed for employee parking only.

A mix of automobile and bus parking will be allowed at three other stations: Shady Grove Station in Maryland, and the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU and West Falls Church-VT/UVA Stations in Virginia. So if you’re thinking of driving your car to any of these stations, get their early, or make alternative plans for parking and riding Metro into the city, just in case.

According to Metro’s website, “Charter buses that want to park at one of the six designated Metrorail station lots must register in advance at Registration information will be available on the Web site starting Monday, January 5. Charter buses that arrive at any of the six stations without pre-registering to park or at any other Metrorail station will be prohibited from entering. Charter bus parking will not be available at any other Metrorail station other than the six designated Metrorail parking facilities.”
