What's new with slugging and sluglines.

Route 610 Commuter Parking Expansion Update- The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will shift traffic into the newly construction portion of the Route 610/Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride lot starting Monday, September 8, and will close the existing lot at 11 p.m. on Friday, September 5. The existing lot will be re-paved and re-striped, and will re-open again in October. It is the final stage of construction to improve the lot and add 1,000 new parking spaces. As part of this transition on September 8, the new designated area for HOV carpooling (slugging!) will be opening in the new lot.

Route 610 Commuter Parking Expansion - Construction work to expand the Staffordboro Boulevard Park & Ride facility by nearly 1,000 new parking spaces is in the final stages. However, Temporary Parking Space Closures Starting Thursday, July 24. [Click Here for Approved Design]For more information from VDOT [Click Here]

I-95/395 SOUTHBOUND HOV LANES TO OPEN EARLIER ON WEEKDAYS BEGINNING MONDAY, JULY 7 - Beginning on or about Monday, July 7, the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) will open the southbound High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes on I-95/395 no later than 12:00 p.m., rather than 1:00 p.m. The HOV lanes will close to northbound traffic at 10 a.m., instead of 11 a.m., Mondays through Fridays, and open to southbound traffic an hour earlier.  The one-hour earlier opening of southbound HOV lanes will be in effect until the end of the summer to help ease congestion on I-95 South.

Coming Soon! New Slug Line to Ballston. Beginning August 1st, 2014 a new slug line is planned from Route 234 (Dumfries Road) to Ballston in Arlington. My sincere thanks to Kelly for all the hard work coordinating this new slug line. [Click Here for Flyer] or [Click Here for webpage]

Updated Maps for Horner and the New Telegraph Road Lot: The new Telegraph Road lot next to Horner has a functioning slug line to multiple destinations. Currently it servers as a "late" lot for just about all the destinations serviced by Horner Road. Thanks to Elizabeth for the help.

Updated Maps Tackett's Mill: Hopefully of the next few weeks all the hand drawn maps for the slugging locations will be replaced with "real" maps as well as satellite images. This will be a vast improvement over the current maps on the site.

Interesting on Google: While update the Tackett's Mill slug line, I notice that Google now labels the commuter lot as "Tacketts Slug Commuter Parking"!!! That shows how often users are searching for commuter lots to slug from!

New Braddock Road / Mark Center Slug Lines: Thanks to Darrell for all the hard work in trying to formalize some newly forming slug lines. Here are the newly created pages on the website.

Also, a distribution list has been used to help coordinate rides from the Mark Center. For more information on how this works visit the Message Board or [Click Here].

Keeping the Website Updated. Thanks to all those who provide input to help keep this site up-to-date. It can be a challenge and would not be possible without the input from fellow slugs/drivers. My sincere thanks to those who take the time to provide updates and changes to the slug lines. [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.
