Driving to Dulles? Here are some traffic changes to make travel more efficient during busy travel days.
NEW! "Kiss & Fly" drop-off point is located at the Dulles Silver Line Metro station. This provides easy access to moving walkways that will take passengers straight to the terminal. Follow "Kiss & Fly" signs and avoid the curbside congestion.
Use both the Arrival and Departure lanes at the terminal. Passengers can easily access the ticketing level from the Arrivals level by using the elevators or escalators. Drivers can prearrange a pick-up from the Departure level.
Wait in the Cell Phone Lot to track incoming flights. There is plenty of space to park until passengers are ready for pick up, and it is a short drive to the terminal.
For parking in Garage 1 or 2, use the entrances located on Aviation Drive.
Ride-App (Uber, Lyft and Alto) drop-off and pickups occur on the outer curb on the ground level outside of Baggage Claim, accessible via Doors 2, 4 or 6.
Extra signage is posted on major routes into the airport to guide drivers to the Cell Phone lot or the "Kiss & Fly." We want trips to the airport to be as easy as possible.

The AeroTrain will have 29 vehicles in its initial fleet. A building located near the south end of the Airport will provide a place for the vehicles to be serviced or parked. It connects to the AeroTrain route via a branch from the main tunnel.
The facility is complete and the vehicles were delivered from Japan in several shipments beginning in 2007. Vehicle testing has begun and will continue throughout the tunnels and stations. After the AeroTrain opens to the public, the Maintenance Facility will continue to play a vital "behind the scenes" role in keeping the trains running smoothly.
