Transportation to the University of Maryland

There are three airports in the area. It is recommended to travel via Reagan National and Baltimore-Washington International airports, which are closer to the University of Maryland.

The hotel is a 40-60 minute drive, depending on traffic, from both airports. It costs approximately $30-$40 for shuttle/taxi/ride-sharing. It may be higher depending on the time of day.

Reagan National has a Metro station. It will take approximately one hour to travel to the hotel. To reach College Park, take the Yellow Line toward Greenbelt. Instructions for buying and loading a Metro's SmarTrip card can be found on their website.

From Rutgers University-New Brunswick, an option is to travel by train to Union Station. From there, take a MARC train toward Camden to the College Park Metro Station. Union Station is also on the Red Line of the Metro; you can take this and switch to Green or Yellow in the direction of Greenbelt to get to College Park.
