Dulles Airport to Alexandria

I am flying into Dulles airport on Sunday (30th June) and am staying in Alexandria. Having a look about I think the best and cheapest way for me to get to Alexandria is to take the Washington flyer coach to West Falls Church Metro Station and then get the metro to King Street.Would you say this is the best & most economical way to get there? We will not be hiring a car during out stay, just using public transport

The 5A bus from IAD to Rosslyn followed by the Blue Line Metro to King Street would be a little cheaper. Check out the details (schedule and fares) at www.wmata.com

Sounds about right. There is also a shuttle to the airport from some of the major hotels downtown and in Northern Va right to Dulles for <30$. Haven't taken myself, search the Washington Post travel section on their website, every now and then they have info on how to get to various airports.
