DC Metro


I'm staying at the Courtyard Marriott at Tysons Corner next week. I'll have a car. I know there's a nearby Metro station. But it looks like you need some sort of card to pay for parking there. Is that correct? Does the lot fill up? I'll probably be going into the city on Friday.

I'll only be taking the train into DC once. What's the easiest way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

This post will probably be too late for your needs, but check out metro's website.


You are correct that parking lot access now requires a Smarttrip card.
