Want to feel more free while living in DC? It’s time to ditch your car.

Ok, there are some days where you’ll need to use a car, which is why we’ve included Zipcar parking on-site at Tenley View. But for every other day, public transportation options around your luxury apartment in Tenleytown make it easy to get around. Whether you choose to travel by train, bus, or bike, you can access the rest of the metro DC area in an eco-friendly, stress-free way.

Here are some great ideas for ways to utilize public transportation. Choose your travel mode, and let’s get going, the green way!

By Train

Commuting? The Tenleytown-AU Station is right downstairs. From there, take the red line 20 minutes south into the heart of Washington, D.C., for an easy work commute. Stop by PAUL for a chocolate croissant and latte to start the day off on a high note.

Want to get away? Take the red line just 5 minutes up north and you’ll be in another state of mind. In Bethesda, you’ll discover high quality theatrical productions and restaurants to rival a bigger city. Catch a show at the Round House Theatre, then enjoy a perfect chicken liver mousse pate, onion soup, and other classic French dishes at Mon Ami Gabi (that’s something you won’t find in D.C.)!

If you’re in the mood for something more laid back, Bethesda’s &pizza offers a “taste of the future with a feel of the familiar”—in other words, gourmet handmade pizzas such as the “Farmer’s Daughter,” a pie topped with spicy tomato sauce, spinach, fresh mozzarella, classic fennel Italian sausage, local farm eggs, red pepper chili oil, and tasty Parmesan Reggiano. After dinner, stroll around Downtown Bethesda. There’s always something going on!

By Bus

Hop on the Metrobus, and you’ll be connected to almost everything—from Friendship Heights to Washington College of law.

The bus runs frequently, particularly during the AM and PM rush, so you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding a seat. Hop on, and hop off. It’s that easy! Plan your trips online and get a rail-to-bus or bus-to-rail discount with a SmarTrip reloadable card if you’re planning on using both the bus and the rail frequently.

Exploring DC? Take the N2 bus from the Tenleytown-AU Station down 28 minutes to NW Connecticut Ave & NW N. Street. Stroll down Connecticut Avenue all the way to Lafayette Square and discover new restaurants and shopping spots along the way. Or head down and walk the National Mall from the United States Capitol all the way to the Lincoln Memorial, and check out world class art galleries and museums.

By Bike

In good weather (and sometimes, in fairly bad weather), DC-ites do love their bikes! We offer private bike storage for residents at Tenley View. Roll along the bike paths around Tenleytown, or head over to either Little Falls Park or Rock Creek Park for a day of al fresco biking in beautiful nature.
