Since opening in 1971, the Kennedy Center has continued its efforts to fulfill his vision-presenting the greatest performers and performances from across America and around the world, nurturing new works and young artists, and serving the nation as a leader in arts education.

Directions: By Subway / Metro:
The Foggy Bottom/George Washington Univ. Station (23rd and I) is the closest stop. From there it is a short walk via New Hampshire Avenue OR use the FREE Kennedy Center Shuttle (signs are towards the left as you exit the escalator). It departs every 15 minutes from 9:45 a.m.-midnight Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-midnight Saturdays, and noon-midnight Sundays and 4:00 p.m.-midnight on federal holidays.

By Bus:
The 80 bus goes to the Kennedy Center. For details on bus routes and schedules, call Metro information.

By Taxi:
Taxi service to and from the Kennedy Center is convenient and readily available. A taxi dispatcher is available to signal cabs and assign patrons from 6:30 p.m. (3:30 p.m. on matinee days) until 30 minutes after the end of the last performance, and taxis queue in the Plaza each evening to serve patrons. Look for the uniformed dispatcher at the Hall of States entrance.
