Turnstiles are now latched

Turnstiles are now latched

On June 18, 2014, Metro concluded its 40 station gate latching series. Rail turnstiles have been activated and will open only with a valid TAP card. Whatever type of fare you're using - single ride, pass or transfer from another system - it must be loaded on a TAP card to ride any Metro Rail line. Please be sure your TAP is loaded with cash or valid fare before approaching turnstiles at Metro Rail stations.

If you don't already have a TAP card, you can purchase one along with your fare from the TAP vending machine for just a $1. Like all TAP cards, it can be loaded with any Metro TAP product. Buy the card once and keep using it.
