Alternative Transportation Options in DC

No matter how you chose to adventure around the National’s Capital remember that there are options other than the metro and bus. 

Take a ride down the streets of the city on a Uber, Lyft, or Lime scooter. Always remember to be vigilant when on a scooter. You are not allowed to use the scooters on sidewalks, so you will be hoping on the road on your two-wheeler, and it’s a lot of fun. Wear a helmet or bright clothing if you can.

You can also grab a bike from any of the Capital Bikeshare stations around the city.
