Directions & Transportation

 

 

Area Airports...

As you can see in the Map above, BWI is the closest Airport to the Academy.  Reagan is DOWNTOWN D.C. and can be a challenge to get to or from depending the the time of day and traffic.  Dulles is almost twice as far as Reagan and can take three hours, two buses and two trains to reach.

(All Public Transportation to Dulles and Reagan require a trip thru BWI to get to the closest D.C. Subway Station to the Academy.)

Warning!  Schedule Flights ONLY in and out of BWI.  The other two airports are too far and costly to reach by taxi.
