1. Re: How long from Baltimore Airport to Alexandria

The DC forum at TA has a FAQ on airport and I copied their links that you need to figure out the answer to your question. A lot depends on what time you get in as the schedules of the buses and of course traffic jams during rush hour affect it all. I typed in BWI airport and King Street Metro into the first calculator and it said 4 hours. The others may be faster but I would only be guessing.

Sorry I can't be of more help but I've never found public transportation to or from BWI to be a viable option. After all, it's inter state travel, not intra city.

Good luck

The second round of chemotherapy really clouded my memory.

Here is a much more helpful discussion of how to get from BWI to Alexandria. Ignore the title of this post and scroll down to read all the answers. Appears that the bus to greenbelt metro is the favorite and about two hours
