What's new with slugging and sluglines.

Thank You Phen! I wanted to extend a sincere "Thank You" to Phen for the donation to the website. Unlike other forms of commuting that the government promotes, Slug-Lines.com does not have a multi-million dollar grant....so donations are welcome to offset costs!

Slugs and drivers have the right to pass or forfeit a ride. Let’s say a couple of rough-looking characters pull up and your gut feeling tells you this ride isn’t safe. PASS. There are plenty of other rides that will pass your own personal "gut" check. This applies to both slugs and drivers. You are not obligated to get in a car or pickup riders if you do not feel safe!

Route 610 Needs New Line. With the expansion of the Rt. 610 commuter lot in Stafford, many slugs are suggesting the need for a downtown DC line. To join the discussion: [Click Here]

Telegraph Road Traffic Pattern Changes. To better organize the ever growing lines at the Telegraph Road Commuter Lot in Woodbridge, a fellow slugger has proposed multiple lines instead of the one massive line. For more information: [Click Here]

VDOT Proposal for Signs for Slugging? The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is proposing new destination signs and an additional pickup area for HOV carpooling in the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot (aka Route 610) to better serve commuters. VDOT is proposing:
• Destination signs for the Pentagon, Crystal City, and Rosslyn lines
• New, separate HOV carpooling pickup area for Rosslyn sluggers
• Crosswalks spanning the lot’s central access road

New Navy Yard Slug Lines - Starting Monday, 02 March, two Slug-lanes will be established on the Washington Navy Yard for afternoon commuters. This pilot is approved by NSA-Washington and will be facilitated by NAVSEA.

DESTINATIONS: The two locations, selected based on a zip code analysis, are:
1) Horner Road - Woodbridge
2) Rte 610 - Stafford. 

BASE LOCATIONS:
The slug line locations will be on Patterson Ave, the one-way (northbound) street on the East side of the Bldg 28 parking garage. Signs will be posted on the left-side sidewalk.  The Horner road pick up point will be on the Northeast corner of Bldg 176, and the Rte. 610 pick-up point will be at the Northeast corner of Bldg 201.  Lines should form to the West between the buildings, and not along the roadside sidewalk. Go to Webpage [Click Here].

Slugging is a term used to describe a unique form of commuting found in the Washington, DC area.   It has thousands of vehicles at its disposal, moves thousands of commuters daily, and the best part, itís FREE! Not only is it free, but it gets people to and from work faster than the typical bus, metro, or train. It's unique because it is not a government sponsored commuter program, but one created out of ingenuity from local citizens to solve commuter problems.
