Washington D.C. is famously recognized for being the hometown of the most influential person in the country – the President of the United States. However, that’s just one individual living among over 600,000 people who live and work around the area. Washington D.C. is also home to several nationally known hospitals that serve hundreds of thousands of people each year.

If you happen to live or work in the Washington D.C. area and commute to work, there’s a good chance that you use the Washington Metro, which is the second-busiest public transit system in the country (second to the New York City Subway). During the fiscal year of 2016, there were nearly 180 million trips on the Metro. In June 2008, a ridership record was set when the Metro saw over 19 million trips done in one month or nearly 800,000 trips per day.

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority runs the Metro and began building the rail system in 1969. Today, the Metro serves 91 stations and has 117 miles of track. With over 770,000 people working in the D.C. area, the Metro serves as a major transportation staple for many people that commute to and from the city every day.
