The Silver Line Express bus is celebrating a year of service to Dulles International Airport by offering free rides on July 26 and 27.
The shuttle, which normally costs $5, offers free wi-fi, luggage storage and front door service at the airport Sunday and Monday.
The Silver Line opened July 26 of last year after five years of construction. The second phase, which will provide Metrorail service to Dulles, is expected to open in 2018.
In the meantime, WMATA will continue to provide shuttle service which can get travellers to Dulles for less than $11 from anywhere on the Metrorail system.
“Dulles International is the region’s gateway to the world," said Airport Authority Vice President Chryssa Westerlund. "We are marketing the Silver Line Express bus to make sure travelers are aware that, with this service, the world is easier to get to than ever.”
