About the Clement Nedd Garment Check Zone

The ATM’s garment check zone was named after Clement Nedd, who worked for the Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) for 30+ years. He played an integral role in securing approval for the ATM to use the Pentagon Metro’s lower bus terminal as a garment check for race participants. Clement Nedd passed away in 2008, and the zone bears his name in honor of his memory, professionalism and dedication.
