Local Transportation

You will find DC to be a very walkable city. For longer distances both Metro and taxis are convenient and easy to use.

Metro Trip Planner is helpful for planning trips using DC’s Metro system. You can download a full color map of the Metro rail system here.

For individuals flying into Reagan National Airport there is a Metro stop accessible from the airport. Individuals flying into Dulles International Airport will need to take a taxi or make other transportation arrangements.

Dress Code

On Advocacy Day (Tuesday, June 19), dress code is business professional. This would include suits and ties for men and comparable clothing for women.

Please keep in mind that you will need to go through security when entering congressional office buildings for advocacy meetings. The experience is similar to airport security. Be prepared to remove watches, belts, and shoes that might set off a metal detector.
