The distance from Dulles Airport to Columbia is 50 miles. On a good day, a taxi could reach our location in an hour, but on a bad day, it can take up to 4 hours. There are shuttles available at the airport. To book a shuttle in advance, see the list below. Some people use Uber or Lyft because of the low cost. For these, you must have the app loaded on your cell phone in advance. After you arrive, you ask for a car and specify your destination. Private cars in the area who are waiting to transport passengers will respond. You then watch the license plates for the correct car to arrive. The fee is processed through the app.
