Subject: Tysons Corner Slug Line

Hi, there is a Woodbridge-Tysons Corner bus route, which is being eliminated by PRTC in November 2014. Those of us who ride the bus and have contacted PRTC and our delegates for a hearing received responses that basically mean it's a done deal - the bus route is going to stop. (When you receive a reply from PRTC and your delegate that says accepting these changes is the "responsible thing to do" even though PRTC's website says it is a "proposed" elimination and we can ask for a hearing, it's clear we need to start looking at carpooling and start a slug line to Tysons Corner.)

I started this discussion thread for ideas where a good pick up and drop off would be. I read from this slug lines website that the best location(s) would be one where it's on or near a commuter lot and public transportation so that a rider is not stuck if he/she is not picked up by the slug line.

Here are a couple of links that may be helpful to Tysons commuters:
PRTC Tysons Express bus route (ends Nov. 2014) - http://www.prtctransit.org/commuter-bus/schedules/tysonscorner-am.html

PRTC's list of alternate travel options once the bus route ends http://www.prtctransit.org/docs/ALTERNATE_TRAVEL_OPTIONS_TO_TYSONS_CORNER.pdf

I'm hoping that looking at these links may help us figure out the best pick up and drop off points for a Woodbridge-Tysons slug line.

Please feel free to make suggestions (and be respectful of other commentators). Thank you.
