I’d too.

Average DC Metro Ridership per Wikipedia: 836,800 per week, calculating a 5 day week (which would be high); 167,360 daily.

So:
For you crowd size folks: Metro rail ridership as of 11 a.m.:
March for Life (today): 237K 69k
Women’s March: 275K
Trump’s Inauguration: 193K

Still too damn many, even if it was 10k.

As an aside, I went to the Rally to Restore Sanity and the Metro was insane. I cannot image with Obama’s inauguration was like. This too is from Wikipedia:

The highest ridership for a single day was on the day of the inauguration of Barack Obama, January 20, 2009, with 1,120,000 riders. It broke the previous record, set the day before, of 866,681 riders.[27] June 2008 set several ridership records: the single-month ridership record of 19,729,641 total riders, the record for highest average weekday ridership with 1,044,400 weekday trips, had five of the ten highest ridership days, and had 12 weekdays in which ridership exceed 800,000 trips.[11]

On October 30, 2010, the crowd at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear broke a 19-year record in Saturday ridership, with 825,437 trips. The previous record had been set on June 8, 1991 at 786,358 trips during the Desert Storm rally.[29][30]
