What you need to know to take the Washington Metro - EASY!

The ACCESS center is located in the building right at the top of the escalator for the Washington underground Metro Ballston stop on the Orange line. Orange line trains can be caught at the Rossyln station, where they meet the blue line trains. Take the VIENNA orange line train (which is only west) from Rossyln to the Ballston stop. Once you emerge to ground level on the escalator, go directly forward into the office building, and walk about 100 feet toward the back into the lobby, elevators will be on your right through some glass doors, go to the 8th floor, suite 800 and you will be there. Can't miss it.
