Reagan National, Dulles, and BWI airports

which will take you to a specific hotel or residence. Make
reservations at the ground transportation desk. Fares vary
depending on the destination. The 20-minute ride from Reagan
National to downtown averages $9-$13; the 45-minute ride
from Dulles runs $22-$25; the 65-minute ride from BWI
averages $28-$30; drivers accept major credit cards in
addition to cash. The length of the ride varies depending on
traffic and the number of stops that need to be made.
If you're coming into Ronald Reagan
National Airport, have little to carry, and are staying at a
hotel near a subway stop, it makes sense to take the Metro.
The station is within walking distance of the baggage claim
area, but a free airport shuttle bus runs between the Metro
station and Terminal A. The Metro ride downtown takes about
20 minutes and costs $1.10-$2, depending on the time of day
and your end destination.
Expect to pay about $14 to get from Ronald
Reagan National Airport to downtown, $50-$65 from Dulles,
and $58-$65 from BWI. A $1.50 airport surcharge is added to
the total at all airports. A $1 surcharge is added to the
total for travel during rush hour.
