Be prepared for long lines, full trains and the possibility of intermittent delays as Metro safely serves travelers to the concert as well as other riders.Before traveling to the concert, please consider your ability to walk, stand, and tolerate cooler temperatures for extended periods of time. Dress appropriately.Bicycles, large coolers or containers will not be permitted on Metrorail at any time on Veterans Day. Prohibited items at the concert include alcohol, bicycles, explosives/fireworks, glass containers, coolers, animals (except service animals), weapons, and more. Be sure to check the event website for a complete list. If in doubt about whether an item will be permitted, it is best to leave it home.For your safety, any bag, package or container carried into the Metrorail system may be subject to random, non-invasive security screening by Metro Transit Police. While on Metro, if you see something, say something! Report suspicious activity or unattended items to Metro Transit Police. Call 202-962-2121 or text MyMTPD (696873). In an emergency, you may also call 911. Getting There Plan your trip so that you do not have to transfer between rail lines by selecting a destination station on the same line as your srcin. There is a station near the Mall on every line. Return to the same station after the concert.Smithsonian Station will be closed all day on  Veterans Day. Use other stations near the Mall, such as Metro Center, Gallery Place, L’Enfant Plaza,  Archives, Federal Center SW, Federal Triangle, Union Station, Judiciary Square or Capitol South.Downtown D.C. is pedestrian and bicycle friendly. Consider walking or biking up to two miles to avoid crowds. Service on Veterans Day  ã Stations:  All stations will be open EXCEPT Smithsonian. ã Hours:  Metrorail will open at 5 a.m. and close at midnight. Selected stations near the National Mall will remain open after midnight until all passengers in line are accommodated (see reverse side for details). ã Trains:  To allow for faster, more frequent direct service to and from the event, as well as more 8-car trains, Yellow Line trains will replace Blue Line trains for one day only. See Blue Line information to the right. ã Schedule:  Trains will start the day on a Saturday schedule (every 12 minutes), gradually ramping up to rush-hour service levels (every 2-3 minutes in most places) immediately before and after the concert. ã Buses:  Metrobus service will run on a Saturday schedule with supplemental trips earlier and later in the day for those commuting to work. See your route timetable for details or visit wmata.com/bus . Fares and Parking  Veterans Day is a federal holiday. Off-peak fares are in effect all day. Parking is free at all Metro-owned parking facilities. We recommend buying your SmarTrip ®  card in advance to avoid long lines. Each rider needs his or her own card to enter and exit Metrorail. Load enough value on your SmarTrip ®  or farecard for your entire round trip. If you are unsure of how much to load, on Veterans Day, $8 is enough value to pay for a round trip between any two stations.If using a paper farecard, add $2 to the fare. Each trip taken with a paper farecard costs $1 more. To avoid this surcharge, use a SmarTrip ®  card. You can purchase a SmarTrip ®  card at any Metrorail station. Blue Line Turns Yellow for a Day   To provide the fastest, most direct trip for the greatest number of riders — and to provide longer, more frequent trains — on  Veterans Day only, Metro will replace Blue Line trains with additional Yellow Line trains. Why is this necessary?  An extraordinary event requires an extraordinary response to meet the needs of commuters and concert attendees. With hundreds of thousands of residents, active duty military and veterans expected to travel to the National Mall (especially the eastern side of the Mall, near the Capitol), Metro is strategically using the trains it has to provide the traveling capacity necessary for everyone on Veteran’s Day. A Yellow Line train gets Virginia riders to the concert 12 minutes faster than a Blue Line train.  This, in turn, means that Metro can run trains more frequently and maximize space for other riders. Yellow trains will run as frequently as every three minutes before and after the event. Arlington Cemetery will be accessible by train or bus.
