Transportation & Accessibility

Transportation 

For the 2019 festival, a courtesy shuttle will be offered on both weekends (June 15-16 and June 22-23), with two routes circulating between hub locations, including places where the barge is docked along the DC waterways. The shuttle will also visit the By The People x Monochrome Art Fair and Eaton DC. Expect shuttles to arrive every 30 minutes during the operating hours of 10am-6pm. 

Note that shuttle service will end at 6pm on Saturday, June 22, so please make alternative travel plans if you'll be attending Solstice Saturday at the Smithsonian's Arts + Industries Building, which concludes at midnight.
