Washington DC Union Station to Arlington, VA by metro: how long and cost?

Jump to last reply

I am traveling from NYC/Newark to Arlington VA on a Saturday at the end of this month-March 2012 for a job interview. While a little pricey ($49) versus the buses, I will take Amtrak down to Union Square because it is generally on time and I can't afford to be late. I need to get to Arlington VA around Randolph and Fairfax Streets. What subways should I take to get there, approximately how long will it take me to get from Union Station to Arlington, and how much is the subways costs one way/roundtrip? I have blocked 1 1/2 hours of travel time to get me there by subway. Hopefully, this is enough time. Can anyone assist me? I'm on a limited budget.

Coming back, to save money and I have no time constraints, I am thinking of using Boltbus for about $20 because I understand they have more leg room as I am 6'1". I have read various on-line reviews (YELP.COM) about megabus, boltbus, and tripper and none of them seem consistently great, but the price is very good. The deal breaker for me was not having enough leg room. Boltbus seems to be the only bus that offers sufficient seating space. Tripper bus seems decent, but all the reviews stated that their seats were small like being packed in a sardine can which is major "no way" for me. I would appreciate some feedback on this. What are you thoughts?
