I don't know the exact cost, but it will be pricey - likely around $80.00. You may be better off hiring a private car. If you're open to taking Amtrak, which leaves from Union Station and arrives very near BWI (there's a free shuttle that comes often to take you from the train station to the airport), it may be worth looking into.

Yup, taxicalculator.com has it at $82.47.

You can take Amtrak like CityGirl said for $11-18 or take the metro to Greenbelt and catch the B30 bus from there to BWI. That would probably be anywhere from $9-12.

A lot!!!!, I would recommend taking the MTA or Amtrak to BWI Airport. The subway/MTA will take you right to one of the commuter station for pick up by the airport shuttle and will take you to the airport termal. Go on line and check out Maryland Transportion Authority.

She is going from Union Station in DC, not from Baltimore. The commuter line from Union Station is MARC and it is not a subway

As the previous poster said you can take the local Maryland Transportation Authority train (called the Penn Line) which operates between Washington DC Union Station and Baltimore. The only caveat is that it runs M-F, no Saturday or Sunday service.

Trains during non commuter hours run about every hour and more frequently during rush hour. Amtrak (national rail service) can get you there over the weekend, but their service is more limited and more expensive.

The shuttle buses as mentioned come right to the station, and are pretty well timed with arriving trains.
