Description of Pictures: For some reason, most of the trees near the station were taken down. Presumably they became firewood.

METFT_190101_01.JPG: Daily Parking Rates
Pay Per Exit
SmarTrip or credit cards accepted
Cash NOT accepted
$4.70 Parking Rate
$2.00 on Saturday
From February 5 - EXTENDED THROUGH 2018
[Fortunately, the $2.00 parking fee on Saturdays was dropped with the new year. However, there are still fees for special events as well as if you don't actually use the train. As explained on https://www.wmata.com/about/news/Metro-restores-free-customer-parking-on-Saturdays.cfm
Metro restores free customer parking on Saturdays
In response to customer feedback, Metro will eliminate Saturday parking fees for Metrorail customers beginning this weekend. A $2 fee had been implemented last February as part of a pilot program.
Riders who use Metrorail will park for free on Saturday, with the exception of designated regional or special events. During large-scale regional events such as Fourth of July, a Presidential Inauguration, marches or other events that draw large crowds Metro may still charge for parking on weekends or federal holidays under a new policy approved by Metro's Board of Directors effective this year.
Weekday parking fees and hours implemented during the pilot period will become permanent. This includes a reduced $3 parking rate at the West Falls Church and Landover Metrorail stations to encourage ridership.
Parking fees will be collected during the following hours:
Monday – Thursday 7:30 a.m. – 12:30 a.m.
Friday 7:30 a.m. – 2:00 a.m.
Individuals who park at Metro facilities but do not use the Metrorail system are charged a higher "non-rider fee" (ranging from $8.70-$10) at the following stations: Branch Ave, Greenbelt, Suitland, Huntington, Dunn Loring, Minnesota Ave, New Carrollton, Franconia-Springfield, Largo Town Center, Rhode Island Ave, Rockville, Twinbrook and White Flint. Metro may expand the use of "non-rider fees" in the future.
Metro is also planning to introduce new payment technology options such as mobile apps or online reservation systems to further improve customers' parking experience. ]

Wikipedia Description: Fort Totten (WMATA station)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Fort Totten is a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C. on the Green, Yellow (Off-Peak), and Red Lines; it is a transfer station between the Green/Yellow Lines and the Red. It is also the last Green Line station in the District of Columbia going northeast.
Fort Totten is located in the middle of Fort Totten Park in Northeast and is accessed via Galloway Street. The station is considered to be in the neighborhood of Fort Totten, and is a short distance from the neighborhoods of Manor Park and Riggs Park.
Service began on the Red Line (upper) platform on February 6, 1978, and on the Green Line (lower) platform on December 11, 1993. The name comes from a Civil War-era fortification which itself was named after General Joseph Gilbert Totten, the Chief Engineer of the antebellum US Army.
The lower-level platform for the Green Line (and the Yellow Line during off-peak times) is unique in that it is built into a hillside, part underground in a rock tunnel, and part at ground level in an open cut. A single-track connection east of the station allows trains to be moved between the Red and Green Lines, and was once used for the Green Line Commuter Shortcut service to Farragut North via the Red Line tracks, before the mid-city segment of the Green Line was completed in September 1999.
Beginning on December 31, 2006 as part of an 18-month trial, Metro extended Yellow Line service to Fort Totten station during non-rush hours and weekends. In a press release, Councilmember Jim Graham said that the service change would support the "development and urban lifestyle" of the neighborhoods between the Fort Totten and Mount Vernon Square stations.
On June 22, 2009, two southbound Metro trains on the Red Line collided between the Takoma and Fort Totten stations, killing 9 and injuring 80, the deadliest accident in the system's history.
