    It’s not just about Metro service…it’s very expensive to go downtown from Wiehle.
    Especially for families, round trip tickets plus parking adds up!

    • Why do you bother?

      $17 a day is insane. But it’s also about the service. It’s a rare day that a train goes all the way from Wiehle to Smithsonian without sitting between stations.
