Travel to Greenbelt, MD, and nearby accommodations


Directions to Goddard

If you are travelling to attend a meeting or workshop as a part of the IMAGE project that is being hosted by Goddard Space Flight Center, please contact J. L. Green (, 301-286-7354) to obtain directions.

Air Travel

Baltimore Washington International (BWI) Airport is located approximately 30 minutes north of Goddard Space Flight Center and is the most convenient airport. Other airports servicing the area are Washington National Airport (approximately 45 minutes) and Dulles International Airport (approximately one hour).

Transportation from the airport

In addition to the usual car rental and taxi services, BWI offers the Airport Connection II limo service. The shuttle cost is approximately $16.00 one way and will take you directly to and from the hotel. The shuttle runs every 1 1/2 hours and can be obtained at the baggage claim area of BWI. Advance reservations should be made by calling (301) 441-3108.

If you are flying into National, one option is to take the Metro. The best route is to take the yellow line to the Gallery Place-Chinatown station and switch to the red line. Take the red line to Ft. Totten and change to the green line. The last stop on the green line is Greenbelt. From there you'll have to take a taxi to your hotel. Travel time via the Metro between National and Greenbelt is about 30-40 minutes (more during commuter hours).

Area Hotels

There are a number of hotels in relatively close proximity to NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center. None of these is within close (2-3 blocks) walking distance, the closest (Holiday Inn in Greenbelt) being about about a 30-40 minute brisk walk, or about 2.5 miles (4 km) distant. Most are within a 10-15 minute drive.
