Since you are coming from Ohio, I'm assuming you are coming into Union Station in D.C. (as opposed to a train that stops first in Alexandria, VA.)

Therefore, from Union Station, you will take the Red Line Metro to Metro Center where you change to the Orange Line which takes you to Ballston. The ride will take around 25 - 30 minutes. For specific details on the route, times and costs, you can use the Trip Planner feature on the Metro website: www.wmata.com

Longhorn (as always) is right on the money!
