the elected officials in the Capitol have their own subway system

Le Capitole has its own underground inside. It is as if a subway crossed the National Assembly or Versailles. This metro represents three lines, six stations, which make up a total of one kilometer of rails. It serves to connect the Senate, the House of Representatives and all associated buildings.

This system allows parliamentarians to save time, not to get too tired and avoid going outside to go from one place to another. Although today, to stay in shape, some people prefer to walk. The first line was established in 1909, at that time they were electric cars, cars. The rails were installed three years later.

The Capitol, built in the late 18th century in Washington DC, is the seat of the US Congress, it takes up almost 140,000 m². In January 2021, pro-Trump protesters broke into the building during a session to confirm Joe Biden’s victory in the US presidential election.
