    I’m starting from Stafford, the route 610 lot, and am traveling up to the Pentagon. How does the Slug work once i get to the parking lot and how is the flow of traffic? how long should i expect to wait for a ride and what are the times that Slug starts and ends. thanks!

    Yellow highlight show where the riders wait for pickup for Pentagon & Crystal City. You can see lot of traffic between 6.00 AM and 8.00 AM, when you can get a ride in about 10 minutes, of course it depends on the day.

    Happy slugging!

      Bridget, There is no slug line to Union Station from Woodbridge, you can always have a “Union Station” sign when you are at the line. Let us know how we can help.

    I can drop off and pick up at their work as long as is within reasonable distance or around Freddie Mac!

    1. Is there commuter parking at the old Kmart in Dale City? I was looking for slugging to Crystal City from there.
    2. Is there a slug line to Crystal City from the Dale City commuter lot?

      Riley,
      Picking up slugs to 18th is the best, take the Arlington Memorial Bridge (to avoid 14th street bridge traffic) drop them off at the 18th street location. Other option is to get slugs to the State Dept, it is just a block off the Constitution Avenue.

      If you are looking for slugs who go to Union Station you may want to try L’Enfant Plaza slug line.

      Where do you pick up slugs?

    I’ll be slugging to/from Horner Road and New York Avenue. Morning is easy, but afternoon seems complicated. Can someone tell me where precisely does the 15th street slug line form? Is it exactly the same spot as where the PRTC D-100 bus line forms? Or is it on the other side of 15th street? It’s not clear to me from the user map, which says “Omniride bus routes are also co-located with the Sluglines” but then shows a map that apparently does NOT indicate the same spot as the Omniride pickup: https://sluglines.com/a/mwiki/index.php?title=15th_Street_%26_New_York_Ave

    Also, I’ll arrive at around 6:00-6:15 pm. Are there still any rides left at this time of day, or should I walk further south to the 14th street/Reagan building slug line? Thanks.
