No,not yet. You can take the metro to Falls Church or Vienna but that's still a half hour away. Dulles airport is closer to Leesburg.

As noted above, there is no Metro bus nor Metro subway to Leesburg VA., a town about 40 miles from Regan National Airport. and 15 miles from Dulles airport. Best bet is to rent a car from the airport and drive.

Actually, depending on the time of day, you may be able to ride the Loudoun County commuter bus to Leesburg, described here. http://www.loudoun.gov/bus

Keep in mind, their schedule is geared toward bringing Leesburg residents into D.C. in the morning and returning back from D.C. in the evening.

I notice on http://www.loudoun.gov/bus that one of the Leesburg bus pickup points listed on their schedule, is at 20th Street in Crystal City, Arlington, VA.

If you take metrorail (details at http://wmata.org) from DCA and ride just one stop (about 2 minutes) and get off at Crystal City metro station, which I think is at 18th Street, you will be approximately a 2 to 4 blocks walk from that pickup point.

You do realize that the above two suggestions means you have to time your arrival and your subway ride and walk so as to make one of the ONLY 3 buses going to Lessburg from that Metro station at 4:06pm, 4:45 pm, and the last one at 5:15. No earlier service in the morning or afternoon since it is designed for people who live in Loundon and work in DC not tourists or visitors.

I stand by my advice to rent a car. the leesburg commuter web site points out in bold that they will not open the doors for late passengers even if they see you. This is simply not a viable option for any tourist IMO.

The City of Leesburg website lists one other option for visitors from DC to get there without a car: By Bike http://www.leesburgva.gov/index.aspx?page=838

"The Town is also accessible via the W&OD Trail, a hiking/biking trail that runs from Arlington to Purcellville, Virginia, along the bed of the former Washington & Old Dominion Railroad."

The city website does not mention the commuter bus though.

Seriously, rent a car or have a friend pick you up.
