Metro passes for Washington DC

Jump to last reply

I would appreciate some advice on passes for our stay. We will arrive on a Sunday afternoon and hope to do a twilight monument tour that evening. We then have 3 full days then we will need to use the Metrorail to get to Union Station around 10am.

We are staying at the Americana Hotel near Crystal City so I think we would be using the Metrorail to transit back and forth each morning and afternoon/evening.

Should we just buy a 7 day fast pass or buy a farecard and lot it up with $30 or so? If we do the farecard how do we know what the balance is? Is it displayed as you leave the exit gate?

Thanks for you help.
