I am considering moving to spotsylvania co. , but I am concerned about the commute. I was wondering how long it takes to get from rt. 17 to 18th. I also would be interested in joining a carpool..Are there lots of rides home at this time? What is the best way to commute from rt 17 to dc, and home again?

Don't do it!! Stafford County is overcrowded and the planning of the roads, schools etc. stinks. Unless of course you like grid-locked traffic everywhere, poor roads, schools that lack teachers because the teachers are underpaid. Think twice before moving to Stafford.

I leave Rt.17 at 6:25 then I go to Horner Road and slug in. I get to 14th and Penn between 7:30-8:00 I hope this helped.

I dont know about Spotsylvania, but I live in Stafford county and I dont have a problem at all. Sometimes it can be hard to get a ride downtown and lately the line in the evenings have been pretty long, but I have never been without a ride. I have a 3rd grader and also she is doing very well in school. You have the Martz bus, which costs way too much money, but its good to try to keep tickets on you just in case. There is the VRE, which is just way too slow. I think the best bet is to slug or if you can find a carpool that would be great also. Or as mentioned you can always drive a little further up north. Hope this helps.

Ok!

I am going to take the initiative to show leadership in getting this line started. If you would please, respond to this post indicating the following:

**Time that you typically arrive or plan to arrive at Rt. 17 in the morning

**The time range that you need to be in DC

**DC Destination point

**Desired time range that you need to leave DC

**Plan to drive only?

**Plan to ride only?

**Plan to ride and drive

Optional - contact number or e-mail

Thanks for your help and lets get this started!!!!!

Trish

P.S. I will be posting another e-mail/posting with detailed information later this morning. Gotta run to a meeting right now.

Thanks so much for taking the initiatve! I had set aside time this morning to do it myself after getting the ball rolling, but you beat me to it. Did you click on the link to start a new line on the slug-line homepage?

I am currently temping, but here is my info:

Arrive at 17: between 7:15 and 7:30
Need to be in DC: by 8:45
DC destination 14th & G (office at 700 13th)
Leave DC from 14th & G: 5:10 - 5:15
I plan to ride only for now

You can contact me through my e-mail and I'll provide my numbers. Hopefully my location and times won't change too much with my next positions. I think 14th & G is a great location since it's already a slug line area and a bus stop. My suggestion for the evening would be for riders to plan to pick up from at least 4:00 to 5:30.



Thanks,
Susan

I leave 17 from 6:45-7:15
Leave DC 4:45-5:00
I work on 13th and F, right around the corner from Borders
I ride mostly, but plan to drive more as the weather gets a little colder
Thanks, I hope this idea works

I am looking for a pretty regular ride from either 13th & G at 5:05 or 14th & G at 5:10 to route 17. Is anyone able to give me a ride?

Thanks!

Thanks,
Susan
