Some Relief at L'Enfant Plaza

Passengers at L'Enfant Plaza station at 1 p.m. (Robert Thomson/Post)

The crowds and lines that have besieged L'Enfant Plaza since shortly after the inauguration have finally begun to thin somewhat, according to Post reporters.

The area was busy this morning because of steady Metro and VRE traffic, and Post reporters report a steady stream of people there.

Remember that VRE service is sold out and the service has said it will not honor any other tickets today; it's apparently not an alternative to Metro.

Dude, Green line goes to Maryland. Yellow line goes to Virginia. And the alternative to the yellow into Virginia will be the blue (also available at L'Enfant).

Is the 1st St. Union Station Metro entrance open for people to go UP the escalator to get to the VRE?

I vote for a metro screwup.
L'Enfant plaza wouldn't let any yellow or green line trains get off around 10 am or so this morning. They skipped the station. They didn't tell us this until we were past Pentagon station and had no other options.

This screws anyone trying to be on the south side to get to the mall to see the inauguration. I walked 3 miles around and still wasn't able to see the capitol building - view blocked by the Museum of Natural History.
