Metro/X2 Bus

Probably the easiest way to get to Atlas is to take the Metro to Gallery Place/Chinatown (Red Line) and make a quick connection from the Metro to the X2 on H street.  The X2 runs along H Street from Lafayette Square (16th Street NW) to Minnesota Avenue.

This bus runs VERY frequently (about every 7 or 8 minutes during the day) and runs 24 hours (though it runs only every 30-60 minutes after midnight).
