Metrorail (Red Line) & AU Shuttle Bus
From the Tenleytown/AU Metrorail red line east exit (escalator or elevator), simply walk straight ahead 100 feet to the bus stops at the corner of Albemarle and 40th Streets.
Both shuttle bus routes—Main Campus and Law School—lead to the main campus and Katzen Arts Center, and both run every 10–15 minutes (if taking the Law School bus, ask to be let out at Katzen). The distance is a mile, about 5 minutes. Buses are clearly marked with AU logos.
- N3, N4, N6, N8 serve pass AU on Massachusetts Ave.
- M4 and N2 pass AU on Nebraska Ave. at Ward Circle
