Much more than a transport hub, the stunning architecture of Union Station with its notable grand archways is one of Washington’s most iconic landmarks. With connections to several cities throughout the country, its domed halls are flanked by boutique stores and top-notch eateries – enough to make you want to make this destination more than just a transit journey.
The main three transport options available when travelling between Dulles Airport and Union Station are taxi or private transfer, bus and the metro. Taking a taxi is the easiest and fastest transport option which can take as little as 40 minutes. The metro is by far the cheapest option and costs just $6 (€5.70) per person, and even less late in the evening and on weekends, but you will need to make a transfer at Metro Center Station and the journey can take up to 80 minutes. Another affordable and slightly quicker public transport option is to take a direct bus which costs up to $22.98 (€22) per person with a journey time of 45 to 70 minutes.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Washington D.C. at the same price as a regular taxi.
