Be mindful of construction at DCA: Reagan National’s construction project, Project Journey, will commence in late July. Stay informed about the latest improvements and possible impacts construction may have on your trip by checking.



Guarantee a parking spot in advance at DCA: At Reagan National, ePark allows travelers to assure a parking spot. Travelers can make reservations from 24 hours to six months before their trip. Reservations can be changed or canceled online up to 24 hours before arrival time, free of charge.



Plan Metro transportation carefully: On June 25, Metro will implement changes to fares, schedules and system hours.

Enjoy more efficient international arrivals: A pilot program at Dulles International streamlines clearance procedures at the primary inspection point. Customs and Border Protection aims to prevent long waits at the exit.
