What time did you get there? I drove out of PM on Monday and Tuesday. I was there by 7:45 and on the road by 7:55am. It's not like you can show up at 8:30 and expect a line of riders.

Eventually, there MAY be riders as late as 0830 at PM. But, right now PM just isn't getting that many riders. That's why were trying to promote it more. Sorry it hasn't worked out for you so far ktzmom...

The suggestion that the over crowding at Horner Road is the result of Potomac Mills and Hechinger riders switching to Horner Road has been the reasoning for years, I would suspect the reason could possibly be the constant increase in gasoline prices.Well I am about to park my vehicle again and jump back in line right along with the rest of you.

That might be part of the reason, but PM used to get full, but as of right now, it doesn't.

Slugbug, I go to the Pentagon and take the Metro. But I'm flexible. Crystal City or 14th street or ANYTHING that's on the way to 6th and Pennsylvania Ave would work!

Does anyone think making flyers like this would help?

ATTENTION: Drivers and Slugs!!!!
More slugs and drivers needed at POTOMAC MILLS lot. Parking MUCH better so drivers won’t have to wait as long for slugs to find parking space.

Maybe some of us could whip up some flyers and pass them out or tape them up on the bus stop things or to our car windows.

It's like you're all preaching to the choir, but not everyone's listening. :) I have also thought about putting up posters or flyers but it's the funding that's tough. But if enough of us are willing to make the signs I'd be more than willing to pitch in some supplies. But I think overall PM is picking up in popularity. I haven't had to wait too long lately in the evenings and hardly at all in the mornings.

There is only way I see to fix any of the overflow problems in any commuter lot in the area and that is to make sure that all cars parked in that lot belong to that area. (county sticker) We also have the same problem in Stafford. We have sluggers and commuters coming in from Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania and beyond. as I'm sure you have from Stafford and further south. We have no place to park either. Our lots fill at 7:30 also. Commuting is becoming a HUGE problem in this area.

There is precedence -- the city of Manassas requires non-city residents to have a parking pass for their VRE lot and those folks are not allowed to park in the lot nearest the station. The pass, however, is free. Park without it and you *will* get a ticket (no if's/maybe's/but's).

I think this is a valid point, particularly considering the Stafford lot is closing. There are many people from Stafford County parking in PW county lots, which in the long run is beginning to inconvenience PW county residents. Stafford county needs to get their act together and provide adequate commuter parking for its residents... before PW county lots are saturated.
