- Transfer Stations are indicated by the dual concentric circle. These permit the traveler to transfer from one line to another. For example "Metro Center" is a Transfer Station for the Orange, Blue, Red, and Silver lines.
- The Metro line travel direction is not stated in terms of East or West, etc. The heading of the train is indicated by the name of the end of the line station. So as an example, when traveling to visit Company Seven from National Airport: proceed on the Yellow line to Gallery Place, then transfer to the Green line heading to Greenbelt.
- The Silver line runs from Largo in Maryland, through Washington, D.C. then out to Reston, Virginia where from there one can ride the shuttle bus to Washington-Dulles International Airport (IAD).
