Getting Here

Are STC Adult Classes Metro Accessible? Yes. Our classes are held at 516 8th Street SE, which is about 2 blocks away from the Eastern Market Metro Station, accessible via the orange, blue, and silver lines. There are also several bus routes that run through the neighborhood. For more information, visit the trip planner on the Metro website or call 202.637.7000.

Is there parking available for adult classes? Limited permit and two-hour metered parking is available. However, Eastern Market is a busy neighborhood and we recommend using public transportation. If you need to drive, please allow ample time for parking, as finding a legal spot for the duration of class is often difficult. We also recommend you download the ParkMobile App to pay metered parking from your smartphone.
