I’m traveling to Washington, DC on Wednesday for a vacation. Most of what I want to do is in the city proper, so I’ll be staying near Dupont Circle. However, I’m going to a concert at Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts on Thursday night. (It’s the Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert, if you’re curious.) I haven’t been to DC in years, and this will be my first time going to Wolf Trap. I have a few questions:
Do taxis generally hang out at the Virginia stations on the Orange Line? Can I flag down a taxi as soon as I get off the Metro or will I have to call a cab company to get a taxi?
Has anyone here actually taken the Wolf Trap Express shuttle that apparently runs from the West Falls Church Metro station to Wolf Trap on concert nights? If you have, can you tell me about it (what it looks like, how long does it take, etc.)?
I don’t suppose there’s a cab stand at Wolf Trap, is there? The last Wolf Trap Express is supposed to leave the Filene Center at 11 pm. The concert I’m attending starts at 8:30 pm, but I don’t know when it’s scheduled to end. In case the concert runs past 11, I’d like to know if it would be feasible to call a cab to pick me up from Wolf Trap.
Thanks for your help.
