Other Ways to Come Out a Winner at the Ballpark
So far, so good on getting people to and from Nationals Park on South Capitol Street SE. Metro has handled the crowds at the expanded Navy Yard station on the Green Line. But that's only one of the choices that allow fans to avoid driving to the neighborhood around the stadium.
Dear Dr. Gridlock:
Fans who end up on the Yellow, Blue or Orange lines after a game should consider skipping Navy Yard. Instead, take an extra 15-minute walk to the Capitol South station at First and C streets SE. Fans going anywhere in Virginia and many places in Maryland can avoid the mobs.
My destination is Pentagon City. Taking the Blue Line through town and around Rosslyn gives me a quiet ride with a seat instead of a long wait at Navy Yard and then a crowded ride to L'Enfant Plaza, plus a hurried switch to the Yellow Line. I've done all the routes for the past several weeks and, believe me, this is worth checking out.
