The Metrorail system has six color-coded rail lines: Red, Orange, Silver, Blue, Yellow, and Green. The layout of the system makes it possible to travel between any two stations with no more than a single transfer.
Use Metro's Trip Planner to calculate fares and to determine the best way to travel (rail, bus, or both).
Each passenger must pay a fare; however, two children under age five may travel free with a paying passenger.
- SmarTrip® cards are used to pay fares on both Metrorail and Metrobus.
- Metrorail fares are variable depending on time-of-day and distance traveled.
- Regular (non-express) bus fares are the same throughout the system.

Through a partnership with Enterprise CarShare, Metro offers car sharing at select Metrorail stations and around the region at locations convenient to Metrobus. You can ride Metro and then pick up a car just steps from the train or bus to run errands, shop or reach any other business or social event not easily accessible via transit.
Car sharing is available in Metro Kiss & Ride lots at 45 of the 91 Metrorail stations (see station pages for locations) and many other neighborhood locations both near Metrorail stations without Kiss & Ride lots and elsewhere in the region. Enterprise CarShare offers several different plans. Register on their website, then reserve and pick up a car when you need it. A range of vehicles are available for members to choose from, including compact cars, vans, pickup trucks, and even some hybrid cars! See the Enterprise CarShare website for further details.
