Dina, do you think you will try again?



I might swing by there but it would only be for a few minutes then I am heading to the Pentagon.

Since this is a new line make sure to have a sign in hand that has either RT 610 or MINE Rd/Stafford on it.

Also, this is really the most important part, the line forms after the break in the road on 19th street closer to Penn Ave. Currently there are 3 VDOT barrells on the side of the street where the riders should stand. Stand in between the 2 trees just after the VDOT barrells. Once the riders go out to the spot, these instructions will be clear. If you DO NOT stand in the correct spot with your sign, you could be over looked by drivers thinking you are either waiting for the METRO bus or a van pool.



Have you received any feedback regarding the latest sluggers have been picked up from 19th and I?

I'm confused about the new 19th and I line. Are there any folks there waiting to go to Potomac Mills? If not, why not? There are so many people who go to 18th St. in the morning from Mills that it's odd that they don't want to go back that way...Thanks for the help!

Hi,

I've been asking around about the 610 PM line and I haven't actually tried it. Would someone please let me know how this line is going and if there's a good chance to catch a ride around 5:05 or 5:10 pm?
Thanks!

Mollie

I wonder whether New 19th St & I St slug line will take Bob's riders.
Thanks.

Amatyap - there's a line at 19th and F for Bob's. The section on the front page labeled "Afternoon Slug Lines" has all the details.

Does anyone know how late sluggers have been picked up from 19th and I? I ask because I work at 17th and K until 5:30 and wonder if I walk over there instead of to the metro if there is any chance of my getting a ride. Any comments?
