charch,

There is a train station at BWI airport that has commuter and Amtrak trains that run straight to Union Station, should be about 30-40 minutes. Shuttles run from terminal to BWI station.

DC visting plan hai?

Thanks for information.

Is it safe to take a train from BWI to Union Station at night? I mean is it safe to arrive in Washington DC at night. I dont know anything about DC and hence the naive questions.

Union Station is not the best area at night just because if you venture in the wrong direction and go towards 1st NE (Greyhound stop) you will be in deep shit.

During daytime it is a very lovely site.

Walk 2-3 block you will reach North Capitol Street and beyond that is the US Capitol and The Mall.

The station itself is spectacular.

Amtrak trains run from the BWI Airport to Union Station for about 20 buck and it takes about 30-40 minutes.
