Yellow Line

Yellow Line Details

Metro's Yellow Line services Washington DC and Virginia's Arlington and Alexandria, and Fairfax Counties. The line terminates at Fort Totten Station to the north, and Huntington Station to the south.


The Yellow Line shares all stations between (and including) Fort Totten Station and L'Enfant Station with the Green Line and shares all stations between (and including) Pentagon Station and King Street Station with the Yellow Line. In addition, the Yellow Line intersects with each other line:

During rush hours some Yellow Trains follow a Rush Plus route in which case they share track with the Blue Line south of King Street Station, terminating at Franconia-Springfield Station. If traveling during rush be mindful of the train destination marked on train cars and station information boards.

The Yellow Line also provides access to Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport at Reagan Station.

Transportation to Dulles International Airport is also available from the Blue Line via MetroBus's 5A line which has stops at L'Enfant Station.
