Getting to THATCamp Leadership by air or train

See GMU’s page of Directions for general transportation options to the Fairfax Campus. You can fly in to Dulles (IAD), which is the closest to GMU, or to Reagan (DCA), which has a Metro stop. Another alternative is the Baltimore airport (BWI). From any airport, you can reserve space on the SuperShuttle to your hotel or to GMU campus; the cost from Dulles or National will be about $28. From National you can take the Metro to Vienna and take a free Metro to Mason shuttle to the Mason Inn from there (see below section on public transport). You can also take an Amtrak train in to downtown Washington’s Union station and take the Metro from there to the Vienna stop; see below for directions from the Vienna metro.

From Washington, DC via I-66W, take exit 60 at Route 123 South, Chain Bridge Road. Follow Route 123 through the City of Fairfax, and turn left at the GMU sign at Mason Pond Drive. The Mason Inn will be immediately on your right; parking is available in back of the hotel.

If you would rather take a cab, try Fairfax County Taxicab: call 703-722-0710 or reserve online; you will certainly need to call ahead for a cab.
