Bus Transportation:

Looking for a ride to the march? Rally buses are available to the D.C. Tax March. Use the promo code TAXMARCH for $5 off (valid for the first 100 bookings). There will not be any drop off locations near the rally. All buses will be required to park and all marchers will be asked to use the Metro to access the rally site.

The DC Circulator’ National Mall route runs close to the U.S. Capitol. Rides cost just $1 and buses arrive every ten minutes. Visit: http://nationalmall.dccirculator.com/#route-anchor. Please be aware that the DC Circulator route might be adjusted to make room for the Tax March.

Car Transportation:

Parking for cars and other vehicles will not be provided and driving to the rally site is strongly discouraged. If you do drive please identify parking lots that may be open near Metro or Metrobus stops. There is a parking lot at Union Station but space is limited, more information here: http://www.unionstationdc.com/parking.

Metro Transportation:

The closest metro stations are Union Station on the Red Line (0.7 miles) and Capitol South on the Orange/Silver/Blue Line (0.5 miles). You will need a SmarTrip Card. We recommend purchasing those in advance ($10 with $8 in fares included) online, at any Metrorail station, or at Metro sales offices, retail outlets and commuter stores. You can also buy a one-day fare card for $14.50. Each rider will need their own metrocard. Find out more information by visiting the WMATA.

What to bring to the Tax March:

All backpacks and bags may be subject to search. We recommend bringing water, snacks, comfortable walking shoes, and sunscreen. Feel free to wear your own costumes/outfits and bring your own clever signs!

Accessibility: 

We will have two sections available for people with disabilities. One section will be directly in front of the left corner of the stage and the other will be at the bottom left of the grassy area. Please note that the section closer to the stage might be difficult to access for those in wheelchairs, given the steep incline of the West Grassy Area.

Entry Points:

By Peace Monument and Garfield Circle.

How to volunteer:

We need at least 150 volunteers for the day of the Tax March and we’re behind. Please spread the word that we need volunteers and sign up here.
