The Washington region has three major airports, but only one of them–BWI–is hard to get to by transit from DC. The B30 bus route used to serve BWI, and WMATA’s ongoing Better Bus network update is a great chance to bring it back better than ever. Passengers use all three of our airports at similar rates: each airport serves around 11 million passengers every year, and DCA, BWI, and IAD are the nation’s 23rd, 25th, and 28th-busiest airports in the country, respectively.
WMATA cut the bus to BWI. Time to bring it back.
