Alternatives to Parking

Metrobus and Metrorail

The University is served by the G2, D2 and D6 Metrobuses routes. Check the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) website for schedules, or call WMATA at (202) 637-7000. Riders can connect to GUTS shuttles at Rosslyn on the Blue/Orange/Silver Line and Dupont Circle on the Red Line. GUTS schedules can be found here.

DC Circulator bus

The DC Circulator bus has routes along Wisconsin Avenue and M Street and provides frequent, low-cost service to downtown D.C. and Rosslyn. Schedules and route maps can be found at


Georgetown employees who use Metrobus and Metrorail can sign up for Smart Benefits -- which allows you to automatically designate funds via payroll deduction on a pre-tax basis. To sign up, follow these instructions. Thereafter, OTM will download the benefit directly into the card's account each month. Users may then tap the SmarTrip card at the station or on the bus to activate that month's benefit. Any unused benefits during the month will be rolled over by WMATA to your account (transportation purse) for future use. Please visit the WMATA website for additional details.


Bicycles ridden on campus must be registered with the Department of Public Safety (DPS). Bicycles must be parked in bicycle racks or other spaces or areas designated for their use and must be parked clear of sidewalks, ramps, building entrances and handrails/fences. Bicycles can only be operated along designated "Bike Path" areas. Any bicycle parked in violation of the regulations governing bicycles on the campus will be cited and impounded. For more information, visit Bicycling at Georgetown.

Two docking stations for this region-wide bicycle sharing system are located near the Georgetown campus. One is located just outside the front gates at 37th and O Streets, and a second is at 34th St. and Wisconsin Avenue. For additional information, visit


Zipcar is an easy way to get around town, and cars are conveniently located on campus in Lot 3 adjacent to McDonough Gym and on Tondorf Road between Reiss and Henle.
