I don't see IAD (Dulles) listed on their sitehttps://somdexpress.com
SME owners identified a significant need to provide a shuttling services that would help reduce the stress of individuals traveling to and from airports who resided on the outskirts and rural areas of Baltimore and Washington DC.
Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI) is approx. 85 miles and Ronald Reagan National (DCA) Airport is roughly 65 miles away.
Do you always share the ride or go alone? How is their pricing to BWI or IAD? MASS shuttle prices have gotten quite high....so high that we're paying POV mileage and long-term AP parking for periods of up to 3 weeks, since that's cheaper than MASS round trip.This is who we use, their service is excellent and prices worth it to me. Don't know about Dulles have done Reagan and BWI.
Depending on how many days you are going, that could cover parking. Mileage, based on the government rate would be covered by the other direction. I'd say it's a wash, financially, But you don't have to wait for the bus and spend time looking for a spot.75$ one way to BWI or Reagan, might be shared or not at most one other person the 4 time we have used them.
Government says I'm supposed to use "long term" parking. I say, if the weather is nasty, they can go F themselves. I'll use the garage and pay the difference. With the government it's DTS and also the program. Some allow use of POV, others require you to use rentals.Now that Reagan long-term parking has doubled compared to BWI and IAD, that factors pretty heavily in to our "drive versus hire" decisions.
I usually POV as well, the downside being if you get crunched, it's your problem, the mileage you get includes your insurance slice. Crunched rental cars are the Gov's problem (unless you are drunk or committing a felony). Still, being single, it's a huge hassle to get to and from the rental places, so I normally just drag noble steed up and back.I prefer POV and parking. Would most certainly opt for a shuttle if it was allowable and met my flight times.
We had this debate years ago and the math shows that if you have a new car, the government rate is not high enough to cover the additional depreciation - you are losing money taking your vehicle. But if it's an older car, you could be on the plus side depending on mileage (MPG).I usually POV as well, the downside being if you get crunched, it's your problem, the mileage you get includes your insurance slice.
