How do I get to Arena Stage?
Due to the opening of the Wharf and increased traffic in the area, getting to Arena Stage and locating parking may take more time than usual. Please allow extra time for travel. You can park in the Arena Stage garage under the building for a special Usher parking rate of $17, if you reserve in advance (based on availability).
The 4th Street garage, located at 1101 4th Street SW is another convenient option. Parking validation for weekday matinee ushers is available at the Visitor Services Desk before and after the show. A chaser ticket will be given, which will reduce your fee to $15. On the weekends and evenings, the reduced rate of $15 is automatically offered.
Metro: The Waterfront station, on the Green line, is located one block East of Arena Stage at 4th and M Streets. The 74 and P6 buses stop nearby.
For more transportation and parking information, please visit the “Plan Your Visit” page on our website.
Thank you for everything you do. We appreciate you being an Arena Stage usher!
