Directions to RID Headquarters

View Larger Map
RID is located on Commerce Street off of Prince, between Peyton and West in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The closest metro station is King Street (yellow and blue lines).

Paid parking lots are available in the area. Street and metered parking is limited to 2 hours.

Walking from the Metro
The RID office is about a five block walk from the closest Metro stop, King Street (yellow and blue line). When you exit the King Street Metro station, follow the diagonally-striped crosswalk through the parking lot. Cross the street, then turn left and continue down the sidewalk (on the right will be a restaurant’s patio). Cross Daingerfield, and then turn right. Cross Prince, and then turn left. Follow Prince until you get to Commerce, then turn a sharp right. The RID office will be about mid-way down Commerce on your right.

Cabs are also available from all parts of the DC Metro area, including at the King Street Metro station. Tell the driver you want to go to Commerce Street — off of Prince, between Peyton and West Street.
