Capitol Hill is also a neighborhood in Washington, a big village, split halfway across, half in the NE and half in the SE quadrant of Washington, DC. Politicians work here, but people live here also.
On the north side, an iconic landmark is Union Station, with some 40 million people annually, shown here to represent the local perspective. This is a true transportation hub, with Amtrak, suburban rail, intercity bus and the Metro(subway) stations to converge. As of 2019, 2nd busiest station in the country.
As of February 2016, the H Street Trolley now gets people from (almost) Union Station to past the 15th St Starburst.
This view shows the station as you drive up in a cab, or Bikeshare or walk from Capitol Hill on left.
