Getting around the city can be hard, but POP! is here to help. When transitioning to college life or adjusting to the city, many are disoriented on how to get around without a personal vehicle like they had at home. We are here to provide options that making it easy for you to choose environmentally friendly option to get to where you need to go.
Bikes as a mode of transportation is a great way to get to your destination, exercise, and be sustainable. With over 85 miles of bike lanes in DC it is a great way to get to where you need to go. However, if you are a student it can be hard to store a bike. A great resource is Capital Bikeshare. With over 278 Bikeshare stations, this service is easily accessible. They offer a program for only $25 annually for students and staff of GW and other local universities.
Public transportation is a great resource option for those in the District. Metrorail, Metrobus, and the DC Circulator are all great tools.
The WMATA Metrorail system runs from 5 a.m. to midnight on weekdays and from 7 a.m. to midnight on weekends.
MetroBus has over 1,400 buses operating on compressed natural gas that produces less hydrocarbons than the typical diesel fuel. This is a great way to get around the city, while also being environmentally friendly.
The DC Circulator is free for all riders along six specific routes. This resource services Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle, Georgetown, Woodley Park, U Street and Capitol Hill.
