Forget the Car

Did you succeed in landing a ticket to the papal Mass at Nationals Park on April 17? If so, leave the car at home or it could get ugly. There are only a few parking garages near Nationals Park, and city officials are strict about parking restrictions on neighborhood streets. Many parishes are arranging bus transportation. Or there is Metro. The Navy Yard Station, on the Green Line, is a block north of the stadium.
You can drive to RFK or the DC Convention Center, park and take a shuttle bus to the stadium. But you need to get a parking permit.

Oh please, why does a religeous observance need to be held, on a weekday, during rush hour? Why couldn't some consideration be given to those who are going to work? Why is a catholic priest/mass allowed to disrupt muslems, baptist, jewish, etc lives?

Warning - the elevators at the Navy Yard metro are frequently broken. The metro workers are using them to haul equipment and supplies(!)
