Sports Capital

Getting Around During the 2019 Nationals Championship Parade

The Parade and Rally will draw large crowds to the #SportsCapital. Fans are strongly encouraged to leave cars at home and to use public transit and alternative forms of transportation to get to and from the parade. View the 2019 Nationals Championship Parade Community Guide.

Metro Rail and Bus

In order to accommodate the tens of thousands of fans expected to turn out for the Nationals’ World Series Championship Parade, Metro has cancelled all previously scheduled track work on Saturday. The system will run extra trains before and after the parade and frequent service on all lines. In Downtown DC, trains will arrive every 3-4 minutes, with departures from end-of-line stations every 6-12 minutes. Metro will have additional trains on standby to accommodate expected ridership. Additional Metro Transit Police officers, rail and bus supervisors, and support staff will be on hand to assist fans.

Stations closest to the parade route (Federal Triangle, Archives, Judiciary Square) can be expected to be very crowded, and for your safety, trains may bypass stations during crowding conditions. Fans are encouraged to consider using Metro Center, Gallery Place, or Union Station as alternates. All three alternate stations are a short (less than 10 minute) walk from the Parade route. To view the Parade from the south side of the route, exit at Smithsonian, L’Enfant Plaza, or Federal Center SW, and then walk north across the National Mall.

All Metrobus routes that travel to, near, or across the National Mall may be subject to detours or delays as a result of road closures. Follow @metrobusinfo or sign up for MetroAlerts email/text messages for updates. Bus customers traveling across the National Mall should use Metrorail instead. Visit Metro’s website for more information.
