The metro will be overflowing on Friday, Jan. 20, so if mobility is not a concern, board/exit the metro a stop early. Four years ago, the Waterfront stop was much less crowded and chaotic than the Capitol South stop, albeit a longer walk.
Metrobus will operate on a "Saturday Supplemental" service schedule, and all routes that usually cross the National Mall will turn around outside the security perimeter
