IAD To Arlington National Cemetery?

Sun Nov 23, 2008 7:40 am

I want to visit Arlington National Cemetery this week. What is the fastest way to get from Washington Dulles to the Cemetery via public transportation? Is there a bus/shuttle/train? About how long will the commute take?

Dont use google maps for public transit in the DC area because it does not include Metro, the largest provider in the region. Use Metro's website www.wmata.com.

mhm. Very very easy. Went to DC this past july and stayed in Arlington and it was a breeze getting around.
Doors open, right hand side, next stop is Springfield.
