Here is some info from the District of Columbia website's Top Questions:

"Transportation from BWI to DC:

1. MARC Commuter trains www.mtamaryland.com

MARC runs Monday through Friday.

2. Amtrak www.amtrak.com

Amtrak runs seven days a week.

3. Metrobus route #B30 to the Greenbelt Metro station

For schedule and fare info: www.wmata.com

4. Taxis are available at the airport.

5. Supershuttle www.supershuttle.com

6. Hiring a limo is an option. For limo company recommendations, please post a question in the forum.

The trains and Metrobus will get you to Union Station. From there, you can take Metro (subway) further to Alexandria. See www.wmata.com for info.

While the above post is accurate if you wanted to go to DC only, it's much easier to take the train and metrobus/metro right to Alexandria.

No point in taking Amtrak to Union Station in DC and switching over to the Metro subway when you can just go from the Amtrak BWI train station directly to the Alexandria VA train station . Just type in from BWi and to ALX on the Amtrak site for the train times and costs.


Likewise, no point in taking the Metrobus to the Greenbelt Metro station and then going to Union station metro when you just can stay on the subway (changing lines) and go from Greenbelt Metro to the Alexandria Metro of King Street. Just type in from Greenbelt and to King Street in the Metro subway trip planner (check the rail only button on the left)


Enjoy your visit
