Shared Rides Serving Washington DC and Baltimore
The Airport Connector
Airport-to-Airport transfers are a service of GO The Airport Shuttle serving Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall International Airport (BWI), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA). The service is an airport-to-airport transfer on a reservation basis. Passengers will ride in a large 7 to 10 passenger Ford van and may share a ride with other passengers traveling in the same direction. The distances and traffic are substantial so at least 5 hours are recommended between flights. Due to the nature of shared rides, please, allow up to an hour for your scheduled pick-up time.
