I'm traveling from Washington Dulles Airport to Edgewood Ramada conference centre with a suitcase etc. and don't want to take an expensive taxi to get there. Any options?

  • Is there a closer airport you can fly into? BWI is a littler closer, but not by much... – Michael Jun 7 '17 at 11:45

    I don't want to be rude... but for a specific point to point journey by public transport with no particular special needs... Travel might not be the best site. Are there any options? Yes, there are loads – AakashM Jun 7 '17 at 13:09
  • Related: How to get to/from Washington Dulles International Airport? All public transportation to the Baltimore area from Dulles will go through Washington, all of the options for which are given in that question. Frankly, I would rent a car. It will take several hours and a minimum of four different modes (bus, Metro, commuter rail, taxi/TNC) to do it this way. – choster Jun 7 '17 at 17:22

Yes!

  1. Take the Silver Line Express bus from the Airport to Wiehle-Reston East
  2. Take the Metro Silver line to Metro Center
  3. Take the Metro Red line to Union Station
  4. Take the MARC commuter train to Edgewood
  5. Take a taxi to the conference centre (3 miles/5 km)

    Call me stupid, but...is this a set of options, or a sequence? (I guess the latter, but still...) – motoDrizzt Jun 7 '17 at 10:57

    This is really the only option, but my goodness the travel from IAD to Edgewood might be longer than the flight itself. 1 hour from Wiehle to Union Station and then another hour to 1.5 hours depending on which MARC train. OP definitely picked the wrong airport for arrival – ethorn10 Jun 7 '17 at 13:36
  • @motoDrizzt Sequence – Crazydre Jun 7 '17 at 18:51
  • @ethorn10 Yeah, BWI would've been the best bet I think (might be wrong as I'm not from there) – Crazydre Jun 7 '17 at 18:51
  • In hindsight I think I definitely chose the wrong airport as BWI would have been easier to travel to Edgewood from. I know my options now for next time! – Rose Jun 9 '17 at 8:05
