Pentagon City (WMATA station)
Pentagon City is a side platformed Washington Metro station in the Pentagon City neighborhood of Arlington, Virginia, United States. The station was opened on July 1, 1977, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Providing service for both the Blue and Yellow Lines, the station is located at the corner of Hayes Street and 12th Street, between Army-Navy Drive and South 15th Street. It links to a tunnel that allows direct access west into the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, a large shopping mall, and east under Hayes Street to an entrance outside the Pentagon Centre shopping complex.

The station opened on July 1, 1977. Its opening coincided with the completion of 11.8 miles (19.0 km) of rail between National Airport and RFK Stadium and the opening of the Arlington Cemetery, Capitol South, Crystal City, Eastern Market, Farragut West, Federal Center SW, Federal Triangle, Foggy Bottom–GWU, L'Enfant Plaza, McPherson Square, National Airport, Pentagon, Potomac Avenue, Rosslyn, Smithsonian and Stadium–Armory stations.

A provision exists at the station's south end for a future second mezzanine, with knock-out panels visible above the tracks on the station's south wall. Additionally, an abandoned pedestrian tunnel exists beyond a set of glass doors off the station mezzanine, which leads to the northeast side of the intersection of 12th and Hayes Streets. According to Arlington County Commuter Services, this tunnel is to be refurbished and opened to the public.
