DC Drivers: Get Ready for Thursday’s MGM Opening


It’s finally here: The MGM National Harbor Hotel & Casino opens this Thursday. With limited parking and public transportation options, passengers will rely on Lyft to get them to and from the party.


How to Give Rides


Drop off at the casino entrance. When you’re approaching the property, take the first left. Then, follow the signs for valet and drop-off zones. Please note that picking up passengers here is prohibited.

Pick up at the hotel entrance. Drive past the casino drop-off, following signs for the hotel entrance. The Lyft app will direct passengers to meet you there.

Wait for requests in the staging lot. After dropping off your passenger, head to Lot C to wait for another request. Simply take Harborview Avenue to the northeast side of the property, following the signs for Lot C.

Thanks for following the rules at DC’s newest hot spot. With your help, we’ll maintain our strong relationship with the venue.
