WASHINGTON ― The Washington, D.C., metro system saw its second-busiest day ever Saturday when hundreds of thousands of people turned out for the Women’s March.
The count was significantly lower on Friday, the day President Donald Trump held his inauguration festivities. There were approximately 600,000 trips that day.
On Saturday morning, people on social media posted reports of crowded metro stations as marchers tried to get downtown for the event.
There’s no official number on how many people came to the Women’s March, although organizers estimated Saturday that half a million people would turn out ― double their initial count.
