The Red Line D.C. Project is a thought-provoking documentary about illegal art and public space. With the Washington metro as our backdrop, a 15-minute ride along the Red line’s Northeast route illustrates the city’s struggle with access and aesthetics.
The Red Line of the Washington Metro rail rapid transit system serves 27 stations in Montgomery County, Maryland and the District of Columbia, United States. It is a primary line through downtown Washington and the oldest and busiest line in the system. It forms a long, narrow “U”, capped by its terminal stations at Shady Grove and Glenmont.
The line provides service at 6-minute intervals during the day and 12-minute intervals in the evening.
The Red Line is the only line in the system that does not share its tracks with another Metrorail line.
