Due to limited parking, COG strongly urges guests to
use public transportation

On Metrorail, guests should take the red line to Union Station. Make sure to take the north exit onto First Street, NE (When exiting the train, the north exit escalator is at the end of the platform). Turn right on to First Street. Walk two blocks and turn left onto G Place (not to be confused with G Street, which is a block before G Place). COG is located at the corner G Place and North Capitol Street. It is located directly across from the U.S. Government Printing Office. For the Metrorail trip planner, click here.

There are also a number of buses that stop near COG. For the Metrobus trip planner, click here. For the DC Circulator Bus route map, click here.
