The Washington D.C.

Metrorail service is available from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport and from Union Station (railway). Take Metro's Red Line to the White Flint Station.

For more information, visit Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.  If you plan to make more than two trips on the Metro, you may find it economically advantageous to purchase a Smartrip Card.  Otherwise, plan to add $1 to each fare you purchase with a paper ticket. 

The Neuroscience Center is located at 6001 Executive Blvd, Rockville, MD. Visitor parking is available but public transportation is encouraged. The Neuroscience Center is located on the Red Line at the White Flint Metro Stop and within walking distance of the stop.
