Metro does not serve this corridor. The closest Metro stop is at Dupont Circle. Another is West End at GWU Hospital on 23rd and I Sts.

Hello Imani,

Since this is Congress Heights DC zip code 20032,the closest metro station to this area is probably Anacostia Metro Station. Wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Take care. ... more

The listing says it's only 2 blocks to the Brookland Metro Station. Walk there.

Then the quickest way would be the Red Line to Gallery Place. Change to the Yellow Line. The Yellow Line will take you straight to DCA.

An alternative--if they're doing track work, for instance--is to take the Red Line to Metro Center. Then transfer to the Blue Line going in the direction of Franconia-Springfield.

Here's a link to the rail map: http://www.wmata.com/rail/maps/map.cfm?

According to Metro, it should take 27 minutes. I'd allow at least 40 minutes. The fare is $2.70 off-peak or $3.45 peak.

Of course, you could also take a cab. That'll cost about $22.

Hope that helps.

The two closest Metro Rail stations would be Anacostia and/or Congress Heights. Though it would be easiest to get to Anacostia Station via one bus (A8). From Anacostia Station, you would then need to catch the Green Line train in the direction of Greenbelt to Gallery Place/Chinatown Station and transfer to the Red line (which would take you to Brookland/CUA station).

Total commute time--including bus and rail transit--is anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the time of day. Hope this helps!

Hi Sarah

The Petworth/Georgia Ave metro isn't right there, but it isn't too far down Georgia Ave (about a mile):

Hey Stephanie,

It depends on if you go to work for the Senate or House of Reps.

I worked in the Senate for 8 years and my husband currently works for the House. The Red Line comes closest to the Senate side, at Union Station (also where the MARC and VRE commuter lines come into DC). The Orange Line will drop you right at the back door of the Cannon Building on the House side. From Foggy Bottom, if you need to change lines, it's easy to do at either Metro Center or Gallery Place. If you are going to work at the Supreme Court or the Library of Congress, it's six of one, half a dozen of the other which line you use, because they are both in the middle between the House and Senate, as is the Capitol building itself.

Either way you look at it, though, a commute from Foggy Bottom is pretty quick on Metro. ALSO, as a federal employee, thanks to Obama, your commute on the metro line will be paid for, up to $200 a month. You could also bike to work, if you are so inclined, as it is only about 2 miles from Foggy Bottom. It is uphill (to Capitol Hill), but it is a gentle incline and you hardly notice it until you are almost to the Capitol.

My company's website has a great search engine that allows you to look at the neighborhood's via map at street level and shows you what properties are available on the map by a little green house icon. Hover over the icon and a small pop-out shows a photo, address, price, BR, BA - click on it and a full listing opens. Our website is www.kangalrealestate.com - click on Property Search.

Feel free to drop me a line if you are planning to come to town and want to go house shopping or familiarize yourself with Capitol Hill. If it's not a terribly busy day in Congress or with his committee, my husband could possibly give you a private tour.

Good luck with the potential new job!!

Regards,
Kelly Putz
