Subway <– Recommended by kristraveler.com

The DC subway system has a station connected to the concourse level at terminals B and C at the Reagan National airport. Being able to access the airport through the Blue or Yellow lines makes this option probably the easiest and cheapest of all. You’ll avoid traffic and pay about $1.50-3.00 to get to most places in the DC area. Even if your final destination is not close to a Metro stop, might be worth taking the metro to the closest station and getting a taxi from there.

Amtrak has daily train service to Baltimore Penn Station – $16 and up one way – and Union Station in Washington DC – $16 and up one way. Amtrak schedule
