2020 Washington Area Otakon Travelers Advisory

Recommended Posts

This is the 2020 edition of the travelers advisory thread for those that will be commuting to the con over the heavily loaded period of July 30 thru August 1.  I make this thread to help Otakon goers as much as possible to avoid potential bottlenecks, or not be caught by changes to traffic patterns & transit lines.  There may be a whole slew of changes for 2020, so keep an eye on this thread as we get closer to the convention period.

Currently, the word is the Dulles Airport extension of the Metro is scheduled to open July 16, leaving only a week or so before Otakon. Because of "best-laid plans" and all, it's probably better to assume more delays in the opening will happen and Metro will not be running to/from IAD during Otakon. If I'm wrong, it will be a pleasantly surprised "wrong". 😊

Metro's board have given their full approval to the new budget, which includes sweeping changes such as fewer routes & in some cases higher fares.  Please look over these changes as these may affect your trip to/from the Otakon...whenever it happens.
