From Vienna/Fairfax-GMU Metro

The Vienna/Fairfax-GMU metro station, at the end of the orange line in Virginia, is the closest metro stop to the Krasnow Institute. From the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU metro station there are two options for getting to the Institute.

  • Take the CUE bus to GMU campus and walk to the Krasnow building. The CUE bus has 4 lines all of which have GMU and the Metro as designated stops (no need to pull the stop cord to get the bus to stop). The CUE buses wait on the North side of the station. Turn left after exiting the turnstiles.  All CUE buses will take you to GMU in 35minutes, but the Gold 1 might be the quickest. From this link you can see the location of the Krasnow building and the CUE bus stop.  It’s an enjoyable 10-15 minute walk on a nice day from the bus stop to the Krasnow bldg.  Bus fare is $1.70 ($1.50 with a SmartTrip card). (3/11)
  • Take a cab from the Metro to the Krasnow building. Estimated fare is $15 (03/11). Cabs wait on the North side of the station. The Krasnow Institute street address is 4461 Rockfish Creek Lane on the GMU Fairfax campus.  (It might be helpful to have this campus map on hand.)
