Ok, so the press release states "free Metrobus shuttles are running between the Braddock Road and Pentagon Metrorail stations"

but they are never clear... are the stations closed - as in you can't enter, but trains are still passing through, or are the stations closed and no trains are moving through (thus turning around at the pentagon and at the airport)

Trains are not going through. Shuttles are only taking people to the airport.

Best bet is to see who is going your way and share a cab downtown.
