From Wesley the Cathedral is accessible by taking the N4 buses that run Southbound on Massachusetts Ave. You disembark at the intersection of Wisconsin and Massachusetts, which is the southside of the Cathedral.
Below are some links for public transportation around Washington, DC.
At the Cathedral:
The Cathedral does have an underground parking garage; however it has a limited amount of space, costs $22, and will likely fill up early. We request that only those with special needs rely on the underground parking lot at the Cathedral since accessible spaces for individuals with disabilities will likely go quickly. Please note that it takes a while to exit the parking garage. For more information, please click on this link:
Near the Cathedral:
There are also spots available in local parking garages. The parking garage at Cathedral Commons, located a couple of blocks from the Cathedral at the junction of 38th St. NW and Macomb St. NW, is $15 to park for 2-3 hours with a maximum charge of $25. (This is the garage for the newly constructed Giant store).
