The Yellow Line of the Washington Metro consists of 17 rapid transit stations from Huntington to Fort Totten. During Rush Hours, certain trains run from Franconia Springfield to Greenbelt. Most trains terminate at the Mount Vernon Square station during peak hours. Service is extended to the Green Line stations during off-peak hours between Shaw – Howard University and Fort Totten. The line starts in Fairfax County, Virginia, crosses the Capital Beltway, goes through Alexandria and Arlington, crosses the Potomac River via the Fenwick Bridge, and continues north in the District of Columbia as far as M Street NW, at the entrance to the Washington Convention Center.

The line shares tracks with the Green Line from the convention center northward to Fort Totten during off-peak hours. It is the quick link between downtown Washington and National Airport, and shares nearly all of its track with either the Green and Blue Lines. The Yellow Line has only two stations that are not shared by any other lines (Eisenhower Avenue and Huntington), and only two sections of track that are not shared by any other lines – the section at the end of the line, and the section between the L'Enfant Plaza and Pentagon stations, including the Fenwick Bridge.

Famous quotes containing the words yellow and/or line:

    Tom’s great yellow bronze mask all draped upon an iron framework. An inhibited, nerve-drawn; dropped face—as if hung on a scaffold of heavy private brooding; & thought.
    Virginia Woolf (1882–1941)

    Next to the originator of a good sentence is the first quoter of it. Many will read the book before one thinks of quoting a passage. As soon as he has done this, that line will be quoted east and west.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
