Airport, More Recent View

The newer and much closer main Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport terminal stands in the background beyond a District-bound Yellow Line train in this view.  Two platforms serve the three tracks.  The middle track is not in normal service.  

The fare structure on Metrorail is based on the distance traveled and whether or not entry is during peak travel hours.  The highest rush hour fare is $3.90, and the lowest fare, at all times, is $1.35.  As with the Bay Area's system, the passenger must insert a fare card both for station entry and exit, and the card's reduced value is printed out upon second retrieval, if there is any amount remaining.
