Harry Weese is a talented Chicago architect, who made the Washington metro being one of the most modern ones all over the world. The network system was designed with a spoke-hub distribution paradigm, what facilities a lot the process of transportation from the centre of the city to the subway and vice versa. Though, it is not really convenient to use the metro system to transport, for instance, from one subway to another one.

The system of the metro is guarded by the police and special ticket inspectors, so the level of corruption is not high, though, you should always validate your ticket in order not to  be fined.

Metro trains run from 5.30 a.m. until midnight on weekdays, and from 8a.m till midnight on weekend. It is always more reasonable to use metro during the day, when the rush hours occur, but you are not able to do the same at night. The way out of the situation is to take a taxi.
