Shuttle service
  • GO Airport Shuttle - 24/7 airport pick up and drop off with private cars and shared vans.
  • Super Shuttle - rides from airports around the world. The fare depends on the destination to and the number of people coming with you. On their website, fares into the city start at $19 for the first passenger and $10 for each additional passenger, so the total cost depends on the number in your party. To get a better idea, you can use their fare estimator. They also offer direct express service (1-3 people) for $60. This is a private vehicle for you and your family.

Rates into the district run on a meter, and you should expect to pay between $60 – $80 for most destinations in and around downtown DC, making this one of the more expensive options.
