Topic: Tyson's Corner Line?
Posted By: stonesw
Subject: Tyson's Corner Line?
Date Posted: 05 Dec 2012 at 9:21am
Is there any interest in establishing a new slug line near one of the HOT lane exits in Tyson's Corner? (West Park or Jones Branch) Perhaps near one of the Metro stations that are under construction?

I've been riding my motorcycle up the HOV lanes and HOT lanes from Fredericksburg to Tyson's since they opened and it is a great ride. Much faster than going into the Pentagon and then out to Tyson's.

I won't comment much about the accidents that happened on the HOT lanes. But I will say the new lanes are not confusing if you're paying attention.

YES PLEASE!!! To and from Tyson's! We could do a pick up line in the afternoon by the Tyson's Connector bus stop(s).

I have been picking up slugs in the morning at the Tysons Express bus stop in the Route 123 Commuter Lot in Woodbridge. In the evenings, however, slugs are hard to find in Tysons.

I occasionally go to Tysons in the morning and will try the 123 lot. I've got my ezflex ready to go. My biggest concern is having to do multiple drop offs and then getting caught up in the local traffic and losing back the time.

Suggestions for end points? Maybe the mall (big parking lot, safe to drop off).

On a side note .. I have taken the express lanes a couple of times each way, just not during core rush hour yet, and they are smooth rides, especially since there are no 18-wheelers to deal with. Best dollar i spent that day.

Last Thursday I used them during rush hour for the first time. I was in Falls Church near Don Beyer Volvo, heading home around 4:30 PM, and couldn't use I-66 due to the HOV restriction. So I took Shreve Road to US-29 and then used the new entrance to the Beltway Express Lanes. Toll was $1.05 to Springfield. I was home in 20 minutes going 70 mph for most of the way, whereas the local lanes were at a standstill near US-50 and Gallows. The same drive (not my normal commute, BTW) used to take me 45 minutes because of the need to get from US-29 to either US-50 or Gallows and then get onto the Beltway. To me $1.05 to save 25 minutes is well worth it.

The new lanes are good for my blood pressure too, a lot fewer aggressive assholes driving in there.

I have found the time savings to be marginal when taking slugs on average days. Traffic on the main lanes of the Beltway seems to be a bit better now that construction of the Express Lanes is finished. Part of it may also be due to the holidays.

Despite the almost tolerable traffic conditions the last couple of weeks, in anticipation that there are many more bad traffic days to come, I am still a proponent of having a viable slug line to Tysons.

I am interested in a line from Woodbridge to Tyson's Galleria area (PwC/Deloitte. Prefer Horner, but can work with the Tacketts 123 lot.

What are good times in the morning?

Why can't we use the Tyson's Express Bus Stop map as pick up/drop off locations for sluggers? This will help drivers locate sluggers in addition if there are no more cars for the morning/evening sluggers can use the bus to get to their destination. I am interested in a Tysons line to/from Woodbridge / Tysons.

Is there anyone interested in slugging from Stafford (Mine Road or Lowes) or Montclair VDOT Lot to Tysons and back? I'm thinking Jones Branch but I am flexible.

All, my colleague and I are commuting to Tyson's. I pick her up from I95&123 Lot at 7:45am. We are looking for someone to join us so we can jump on HOV/Express Lines. We work at Deloitte Building right off of Westpark. We typically leave Tyson's by 5pm, say 4:45pm.
If you are interested please let me know. Thanks!

Hi All - a lot of these posts seem old. Starting my new job in Tysons tomorrow and hoping to learn that somewhere, somehow there's a slug line running. Got my EZPass Flex and ready to use it! [:D]

John,

My Wife and I also commute from Stafford to Tysons/McLean are you interested in car pooling until there is a slug-line?

Hi Guys,

I just accepted a job in Tysons corner after having slugged to Rosslyn for 7+ years from Woodbridge.

I am very much interested in slugging to Tysons, my job is near Westwood center drive, and don't mind being dropped off within a quarter mile from it. I think the Omni ride bus stop on Signal Hill Road is the closest.

I can park at the I95/rt 123 commuter lot. Are there any regulars going to Tysons and is this possible?

I can be reached at Shahpriyank@gmail.com, if we want to coordinate something.

I am also in the process of ordering my EZ Pass Flex and can drive a day or two in the week.

Looking forward to hearing from fellow sluggers.

Thanks!

I live right across from Rolling Valley Slug & work in Tyson's off Greensboro. I would LOVE to be able to use the HOT lanes. I usually leave the house around 8:00 & head home around 6. If there is not a slug line, I'd be interested in carpooling if anyone is interested. Thanks!
