Getting to the March
We are still confirming final details on exact march route and meeting locations. However, it will be in the vicinity of the White House, Mall, and Capitol — all highly accessible areas of Washington D.C.
In general, taking mass transit is highly advised. Parking will be very limited, as there will likely be road closures throughout the area that may impact accessibility.

Organize a Bus
Organizing a private bus is a great, cost-effective way to help bring people from your community or group to join the PCM. It’s also a great organizing tool to build the capacity of your local groups and share a powerful experience together. They can seat anywhere from 15 – 55 people, and we can help you with logistics for this.
You might have a local bus company that you’re used to using. If so, great! If not, you might want to check out charter companies and get quotes on prices at http://www.busrates.com/ or http://www.shofur.com.
If you are interested in organizing a bus from your community, please fill out this form:
Start a Bus
We have lots of resources and a toolkit to help you do this effectively – and lots of tips on how to save on costs, connect you with other interested riders, and also use this as a powerful organizing tool with your community. If you are already organizing a bus, you should also fill out the form.
The Metro system in D.C. is easy to use, and connects to various regional transit systems. If you are driving in, consider parking at a Metro stop further away and taking the train in. Once march routes are confirmed we will list specific Metro lines and stops that will be best to use. You can find more information about the DC area bus and metro options at https://www.wmata.com/
Trains / Amtrak and Public Regional Buses
Amtrak has good service into DC, and in fact, they offer group sales with discounted group rates. If you have 75 people you can sometimes reserve an entire car and use it as an organizing space too! You can find our more about that on Amtrak’s website: https://www.amtrak.com/group-travel-requests.
There are also many services that offer regional bus transit – you can buy individual seats, or also sometimes group rates. Costs can be very reasonable, especially if you buy early. A few options to consider are:
Rideshares and Car Pools
Need a ride to PCM? Are you driving to PCM and have room? eRideShare is a great rideshare system where you can connect with other potential carpoolers. Click here to visit their Peoples Climate March-specific page.
Travel Stipends and Financial support
We want to ensure that as many people that want to attend PCM can. We have limited funds available to support group (not individual) travel to D.C. – and we want to prioritize making sure that the PCM reflects the diversity of people who care about, and are most impacted by the climate crisis. This funding can help offset the costs of private charter buses or van rentals — please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
If you can offer financial support to lower the costs of other people attending PCM, please donate here.
