Airport Information

Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport is located approximately 30 minutes north of Goddard Space Flight Center and is the most convenient airport. Other airports servicing the area are Washington Reagan National Airport (approximately 45 minutes) and Dulles International Airport (approximately one hour).

In addition to the usual car rental and taxi services, BWI offers the Airport Connection II limo service. The shuttle cost is approximately $16.00 one way and will take you directly to and from the hotel. The shuttle runs every 1 1/2 hours and can be obtained at the baggage claim area of BWI. Advance reservations should be made by calling (301) 441-3108. If you are flying into National, one option is to take the Metro. The best route is to take the yellow line to the Gallery Place-Chinatown station and switch to the red line. Take the red line to Ft. Totten and change to the green line. The last stop on the green line is Greenbelt. From there you'll have to take a taxi to your hotel. Travel time via the Metro between National and Greenbelt is about 30-40 minutes (more during commuter hours).
