Ticket prices are often lower at BWI, although a ride into Washington with BWI Airport Taxi will cost $63.

Transportation from the Airport

All three of Washington D.C.'s airports handle heavy commercial traffic and millions of passengers every year.

Washington D.C. is a city of monuments, museums, and marvels. The District of Columbia is where you'll find the Smithsonian Institution.
