Travel Information

To/From Airport

The Washington Metro has subway service to Gaithersburg. Metro can be boarded at National Airport. Take a Yellow Line train marked "Mount Vernon Square" to the Gallery Place stop and transfer to a Red Line train marked "Shady Grove" to the Shady Grove station. Service is every 6 to 15 minutes, depending on the time of day. The travel time from National Airport to Shady Grove is about 50 minutes. Taxis are available from the Shady Grove Metro station to area hotels.

Super-Shuttle, 1-800-258-3826, and Federal Airport Shuttle, 1-866-721-2929, offer commercial van service from Dulles International, Ronald Reagan National, and Baltimore-Washington International Airports to Gaithersburg. Call for reservations.

Due to increased security, NIST no longer allows airport shuttles or taxis on campus. If you make arrangements for an airport shuttle/taxi to pick you up at NIST, you must meet the vehicle at the Visitor Center (Gate A -- Main Gate), which is a 10-minute walk from Building 101. If you require special assistance to get to the Visitor Center from Building 101, please see an attendant at the registration desk.
