Dupont Circle to BWI via public transit

Jump to last reply

I didn't realize that it was such a hassle to get to BWI. Now that I have booked air tickets; I have to figure out how to get to BWI from Dupont Circle using public transportation.

I have searched online and found various options, but they are confusing not knowing systems in DC. We need to be at BWI for a 6:25 pm flight. What time do we need to leave Dupont Circle to get to airport by 4:30 [or will 5 pm be ok for checkin?] 3:oo pm??

I found this:

"Choosing your preferred method, reach Union Station on the red line. This station doesn't have parking, so if you'll drive to Metro, keep that in consideration for your fare. If you park in a lot you will have to pay, see WMATA's parking page for more information. (The fees are less than parking at an airport! Though you take a possible risk parking over an extended period of time.) You can reach the station through a series of bus lines.

Exit the Metro wing and board the MARC, using the Penn Line. You will ride to its Marshall State Airport stop, which will cost $8. Expect the trip to take an hour; the ride is usually less (an average trip from Union Station to the end of the line at Penn Station is exactly sixth minutes; BWI is before the end of the line) but you may encounter delays. Allow for more time than the trip will take so you don't miss your flight.

The airport entrance is within walking distance of the station. "

Anyone confirm that this will work? Any alternates that don't involve private car or taxi, Amtrak. Trying to do this for easiest, and least expensive option. There are 2 of us.
