Washington Dulles starts up its new AeroTrain

It took more than a dozen years to build, and it cost $1.5 billion, but Washington Dulles Airport’s new AeroTrain finally started operating last week. The three-car electric trains with rubber wheels will carry passengers between the main passenger terminals and the airport’s A, B and C concourse gates – although those going to C gates will have to walk 500 feet underground from the train stop, because it was located underneath a planned future concourse that has yet to be built. Passengers using the D concourse and the International Arrivals Terminal will still have to use the airport’s mobile lounges. The trains will run every two minutes during peak travel times, and will have enough space for 50 passengers with their carry-ons.
