The Zoo's Connecticut Avenue entrance is equidistant from 2 Metrorail stops. There is a Metrobus stop directly in front of the Zoo. Taking public transportation instead of traveling by car saves natural resources.
Note: It's an uphill walk of about one-third of a mile from Woodley Park. You may prefer to take a bus from this station to the Zoo. When you arrive at Woodley Park, cross Connecticut Avenue and catch an L2 or L4 bus, in the direction of Chevy Chase Circle. The third stop is the Zoo stop and is right at the Zoo entrance.
Note: The walk from Cleveland Park is about half a mile. You may prefer to take a bus from this station to the Zoo. When you arrive at Cleveland Park, exit on the west side of the street (by the restaurant Indique) and catch an L1 or L2 bus, in the direction of Dupont Circle or McPherson Square. The third stop is the Zoo stop and is across the street from the Zoo entrance.
If you have any questions or need more information about taking public transportation to the Zoo, contact Metro at 202.637.7000 or visit the Metro website.
