What train?

like

There's no train yet... still being built. Avoid IAD at all costs. DCA is amazing.

IAD is the worst. uber if for work, otherwise take a supershuttle or something. it was $30 for me last time i went on vacay, picked me up from my house and took me to IAD. cheaper than uber or taxi

There's no train. You could uber to Wihle if you'd like, but once you're in a cab you'd might as well stay

The teleport is the fastest, but just like the train, it will take a few years before its operational.

Amex and Uber have a deal for a free ride up to $65 from IAD/DCA. Look it up and do that

UBER

You have to take a bus to the end of the silver line. It's the most demoralizing thing ever. Don't do it

Ew. Ok. I used to live there and am visiting for the weekend. Usually fly into DCA. Thought the new train extended to the airport, but guess I was mistaken!

The 5A bus goes to Rosslyn and L'efant. If it is for work, just uber. Cab can be as much as $70+ to get to the city.

Even when train goes to airport Uber will still be a lot faster outside of peak rush hour.

Hi Atlanta fishes, I’m moving to Atlanta in coming months and looking for your advice & recommendations for neighborhood and apartment search prior to in-person visit soon. Background & factors: - Male / single / age 30 (I like city life and going out yet prefer relatively calm place during weekdays than too much exposure to crowd & street noise) – heard ATL midtown isn’t too loud anyways - For monthly rent (1BD or studio), I would prefer $1800~$2000 range but can afford up to ~$2100+ (cont’d)
