Airport Transportation

Flying into Washington, DC

There are three major airports in the Washington, DC region: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (airport code: DCA), Washington Dulles rel="noopener noreferrer" International Airport (airport code: IAD) and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (airport code: BWI). All three offer multiple U.S. and international  flights daily, with Washington Dulles International Airport being one of United Airlines‘ eight domestic hubs.

Transportation & Parking

Reagan National Airport is located just across the Potomac River in Virginia and is the closest airport to DC. It is accessible via its own Metro stop on the Blue and Yellow Lines. (It’s also the airport you’re most likely to spot senators and representatives heading home to their districts). To catch a taxi, look for the official rel="noopener noreferrer" taxi stand outside of baggage claim. A ride into downtown DC will cost about $15-$20. Visit the Reagan Airport transportation and parking page for more information.

All three airports also have a variety of car rental desks. Check with your preferred car rental company for more information.

Other Airports

Dulles Airport is located 26 miles from DC in suburban Virginia. It has a dedicated access road that makes getting into the city efficient via car, taxi or airport shuttle. Washington Flyer taxi cabs exclusively service Dulles Airport. Taxi stands are located outside the main terminal at Door 2 and Door 6. A ride into DC will cost about $60-$68.

Washington Flyer also offers a Silver Line Express Bus that drops off at the Wiehle-Reston East Metrorail station about 15 minutes rel="noopener noreferrer" away. Silver Line Express Bus fare is $5 for one way. Purchase tickets inside the airport at Arrivals Door 4. Visit the Dulles Airport transportation and parking page for more information.

BWI Airport is a bit further out in Baltimore, but oftentimes that means you can find even better flight deals. BWI rel="noopener noreferrer" Airport is accessible via an Amtrak train route that drops off at DC’s Union Station. A reserved seat on the train will cost $15-$30. Visit the BWI Airport ground transportation page for more information.
