Similar northern Virginia bus operators strike in August 2019 took about 3 working days for the First Transit and the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) to come to a tentative agreement and resume bus services. Your best options may be to telework. If you are planning to drive, please consider filling up empty seats and cruise on the HOV / HOT lanes. Sluglines helps you fill up empty seats, about 2000 commuters slug from Springfield to work everyday.
