So my new commute gives me a one legger into DCA, unfortunatly im based in IAD now. Anyone have any experience on the best way to get to IAD from DCA
They've been trying to extend the Metro (existing light rail) system out to IAD for years. (The access road, built in the 60's, left an easement inbetween the lanes specifically for a future rail project.) It's been approved, delayed and renegotiated over, and over, and over...Hmm aren't they building some light rail system at IAD to go between the two airports or something?
metro blue line to rosslyn than the orange line to west falls church. the flyer picks up there i believe every 30 minutes. if your in uniform or have a badge they have an airport employee discount $3 or $4 toal price one way.depending on how well u time the 2 trains and the bus i did it in as little as 50 minutes and as long as about 1:45 not ba really.

Furthest west Metro stop on the orange line is Vienna. For what ever reason the washington flyer bus picks up and drops off at the West Falls Church station.oops, yeah forgot about the orange to falls church. that should be the furthest west you can take the metro.
ditto to what that guy said. Im guessing less than 90 mins from curb to curb, if you can time the buses right, which is important.
