Pre-Arrival Transportation

You should plan to arrive in Washington, D.C. during U.S. business hours, Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., when most University offices and area business are open. D.C. is served by three major airports: Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA), Dulles International Airport (IAD), and Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI). Unfortunately, Georgetown University is unable to provide airport pickup.


Super Shuttle
SuperShuttle’s blue and yellow vans take you between the airport and your home, office or hotel. SuperShuttle is less expensive than taxis but more expensive than public transportation buses and Metrorail. The company is able to keep their prices low by having passengers share a ride within one vehicle. You can use a Super Shuttle without a reservation when you land at DCA, IAD, or BWI airports. Make reservations to be picked up at home or at work on SuperShuttle’s website (new window) or by calling 800 BLUE-VAN (258-3826).

Taxis
Taxis are a more expensive form of transportation that provides convenience. Taxis serve the entire metropolitan area, including Reagan National Airport, Dulles Airport, and BWI Airport.
