Washington DC Charter Bus

Washington, D.C. is most commonly known, of course, for being the United States capital. Although its actual population is over six hundred thousand people, Maryland and Virginia commuters raise the workweek population to over one million people. However, the Washington Metropolitan Area has a population of 5.7 million, which makes it the seventh-largest metropolitan area in the country.

However, D.C. is more than just federal government, lobbying groups and professional associations. It’s also home to Fortune 500 companies Fannie Mae, Pepco Holdings Inc. and Danaher. It’s a hub of activity all the time, and business is being conducted night and day. The phrase “Inside the Beltway” refers to the city and the inner suburbs of Maryland and Virginia that lie within the 64-mile I-495. If you’re unfamiliar with D.C., navigating its roads can be a challenge. For one thing, the city streets were designed by French architect Pierre L’Enfant with diagonal avenues crossing circles and plazas in order to allow for more green space. But, they lead to lots of one-way streets with unclear signs. For that reason, alone, you can leave the driving to us – the benefit to a charter bus or shuttle van is that we provide professional drivers who know the roads cold; they aren’t going to be frazzled or distracted by road signs or confusing one-ways, and they will ensure that you don’t make a wrong turn that will cost you time and money getting to your destination.

There are three major airports serving the D.C. area: Dulles International Airport, Reagan National Airport and Baltimore/Washington International Airport. There is also a host of public transportation options:

National Mall tour buses

There is the perception that Washington, D.C. is the White House and all of the attractions that people flock to the nation’s capital to see. However, D.C. is much more than that. Its downtown district is the center of it all – the National Mall, theater district, Smithsonian, dining, Chinatown, convention center, business district, White House, West Potomac Park, Kennedy Center and the Tidal Basin. North Central is D.C.’s trendiest and most diverse section. There, you’ll find live music and clubs, restaurants, boutiques, embassies, Little Ethiopia, jazz and lots of hotels. West D.C. is the wealthier end of town; you can find colonial architecture, upscale dining, the National Zoo, National Cathedral and high-end dining. Finally, the East district starts at the Capitol building and Library of Congress and continues through the Capitol Hill neighborhood. It includes the “Little Vatican” around the National Shrine, the National Arboretum, Kenilworth Aquatic Gardens, nightlife in the Atlas District and other eccentric neighborhoods.
