The Metro Entrance Facility (MEF) to the Pentagon, which is the Pentagon entrance located nearest to the Metro Station, is located near Corridor 10 on the first floor. When departing the building, the MEF is best reached via the second floor, Corridor 1 or 10 (whichever is closest to your office), then down the escalator and out. MEF hours of operation are 5:00 am to 8:00 pm, Monday through Friday. The MEF is closed on weekends and holidays.
If you need to exit or enter the Pentagon at other times, and have used Metro as your mode of transportation, select Corridor 2 Pedestrian Bridge Entrance on the second floor, since it is the closest to the Metro station of the various after-hours Pentagon access points. Once you exit the security checkpoint at Corridor 2, walk left around the building to reach the Metro station.
If you do not need to use the Pentagon Metro station, select an exit that will bring you to the lot where you have parked.
NOTE: In general, major and minor adjustments to the building access/egress points are posted in bulletins published by the Pentagon Building Management Office (PBMO). These bulletins can be found on the WHS website: Buildings and Facilities (CAC-enabled link).
