The only exception will be Franconia-Springfield Station, where trains will depart every 24 minutes, rather than the usual 12 to 20 minutes. All other 85 stations will have service every 6 to 12 minutes during daytime hours.

Metro will provide additional customer service staff at key stations to provide assistance for visitors. On Saturday, guests attending the event on the National Mall are encouraged to use the following four stations:
• Farragut North
• Farragut West

Entry points to the Saturday event on the National Mall will be located near 17th Street NW on both sides of the World War II Memorial. Foggy Bottom Station is recommended for guests with disabilities only.
