By Metro:

Take the Yellow line to the Huntington Metro station. It is less than 1 mile from Softworks. Walk east on Huntington, cross Route 1 Richmond Highway. Cross where it dead ends at Fort Hunt Road, walk the access road directly to the Softworks building. (For all Metro stations, see the Metrorail Stations page. For a map of the station and surrounding neighborhood, click on the PDF in the Entrances / Evacuation Maps box. For the full Metro system of lines, see the Metrorail map.)

By Car:

From the Beltway (I-495):
Take the Route 1 south exit going toward Fort Belvoir and away from old towne. (This is the last exit before the Wilson Bridge if you are travelling from Virginia or the first exit past the Wilson Bridge if you are travelling from Maryland.) From the far right lane on Route 1, exit right and follow the Fort Hunt Road crossover. (You cannot turn right from Route 1 on to Fort Hunt Road.) Stay in the left lane and turn so that you are now going north on Route 1 (you are essentially doing a U-turn). Make an immediate right into the parking lot for 5845 Richmond Highway; it is an 8-story brown office building behind Amoco and next to the Hampton Inn. Greeters will escort you from the front of the building up to the SOFTWORKS meeting room on the fourth floor.

Where to Buy a SmarTrip Card

You may purchase SmarTrip cards online from the Metro Store. (Note: The Metro Store page is on a very slow server so it may take a while for the page to load.)

Standard SmarTrip Farecard

A renewable SmarTrip farecard purchased online has a $20 fare value already on it. The cost for the renewable card is $5. The total charge for this card is $25 online.

Senior and Disabled SmarTrip Farecard

In order to purchase a discounted farecard, Senior citizens (65 and older) and persons with disabilities must have proof of age or a valid Metro Disability ID Card. For information on how to apply, see http://www.wmata.com/accessibility/metroaccess_eligibility.cfm. Senior citizens 65 years or older with a disability and Medicare card holders with a valid photo ID are not required to apply for the Metro Disability ID card, but may purchase fare by showing proof of age at any Metro Sales location, many public libraries in the District of Columbia, Montgomery County, and Prince George's County, and retail outlets. Applications for the free WMATA Disabled ID card are available from the Office of ADA Programs at 600 Fifth Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20001 or by calling 202-962-1245 or TTY 202-628-8973 or calling 202-962-1558 or TTY 202-962-2033 and requesting an application be mailed to you.
