The DC One Card is a consolidated credential designed to give children, adults and seniors access to DC government facilities and programs, including public schools, recreation centers, libraries and the Metro. The DC One Card is also a building access card for DC government employees and includes a bonus - Metro SmarTrip® capability for travel within the WMATA transportation system.    

The DC One Card ID is designed to:

  • Give all residents physical and logical access to all required DC government facilities, resources and programs
  • Offer convenience by eliminating the need for multiple District-issued ID cards
  • Provide access to the WMATA transportation system by incorporating Metro SmarTrip® capabilities into select DC One Cards.
  • Reduce credentialing inefficiencies, reduce costs, and mitigate fraud and misuse.
