Transportation & Accessibility


For the 2019 festival, a courtesy shuttle will be offered on weekends, circulating between hub locations, including places where the barge is docked along the DC waterways. Check back closer to the festival for a detailed shuttle schedule.


By The People strives to be accessible for all visitors. All hub locations (including parks where the barge is docked) are ADA accessible, as are all locations for official By The People dialogue events and artist talks. 

If you are interested in ASL interpretation, translation services, or other accommodations for official By The People events, or if you have any questions about accessibility, please reach out to us via email at, or call 202-796-4240

Satellite locations vary in their accessibility – we strongly encourage you to reach out to satellite locations directly when planning your visit to discuss accommodations.
