old school @ dulles

Yes childrens, our premier international airport still relies on ancient 1960’s technology – the bus – to get folks to Gate C.

The other gates are serviced by new-fangled moving sidewalks but Gate C, where United and my flight to San Francisco are, is still old school. Anyone know when we might get the 21st century to Dulles Gate C?

    Haven’t been building a people mover/subway for the last five years with another five years to go?

    yeah, they’re working on it … you can’t have missed all the construction going on.

    Um, am I the only one who loves this technology, which is straight out of Star Wars? The omnipresent diesel fumes alone make this mode of transportation so much cooler than some silly moving walkway.

    Oh but the moon rovers are SO much fun when you are jet lagged and returning to the US, eh?


    But seriously, in the long run, there won’t be walkways to C gates, there will be a train. Check it out here: http://www.metwashairports.com/_/File/_/AirportTrainSystem.pdf

    The sooner they get rid of concourse C/D the better. It’s horrible.
