Metro Station Crowding From East to West

On my just completed crosstown journey, I noticed the most intense crowding at the Metro stations closest to the Capitol. That was Union Station on the Red Line and L'Enfant Plaza on the others.

As I traveled west by train, the other station platforms, escalators and exits flowed much more freely. Even Metro Center, a major transfer point, was easy to walk through early this morning. Farragut West and Foggy Bottom were almost empty, though the inbound trains passing through the stations were heavily loaded.

This may change as the morning goes on and the crowd for the swearing-in extends farther and farther along the Mall.
