  1. Metrorail

    For most destinations in the city, Metrorail, the subway-surface rail system, is the best way to get around. Service is frequent, cars are clean and comfortable, stops are convenient to major sights, and the system is among the safest in the world. Fares depend on distance traveled, ranging from $1.35 to $3.90. There are 1-day, 7-day, and 28-day passes that allow unlimited trips for a reduced fare.
