The bus service information can be found on PRTC web page under FAQs. There are only 2 bus routes that service the new lot.

The two buses that are running to the new lot are:
- Rosslyn/Ballston OmniRide
- Dale City - Pentagon/Crystal City OmniRide
The idea is to only have these two to minimize the disruption to the traffic on Telegraph from having buses making left turns. Once they widen Telegraph, there should be more lines that run there.

Still no decision about Telegraph Rd. lot? What's the hold up? I spoke with the police officer stationed at the entrance to help buses (and cars but I got the idea it was predominately for the busses) exit and even he asked why the website for slugs hasn't come up with an idea to avoid the pedestrian traffic from lot to lot and commented on how unsafe the situation is.

Yes this lot is really unsafe i agree, and now they are closing Tackets lot i had flyer on my car tonite to say they are closing in 2wks that we now must park at Telegraph which clearly isn't trying to not only set up slug lines but now they want us to cross a road thats completly unsafe with or without cops there. Please who thought about any of this and why us have commuters have no decision in any of this. Really stupid!!!!!!!!

The logical solution would be to move the Rosslyn slug line to the new Telegraph Road lot, since that's one of two buses that service that lot, and see how many cars move over there. I have the feeling that the Pent and Crystal City lines would move too many cars and overload that lot.

In response to "Rocku" i park in lot closest to the Sentara hospital which is the one they just built that i now understand to be the lot closing..HOpefully not the whole Tacketts lot which i misunderstood to be closing.

Since this coincides with the opening of the HOT lanes to Tyson's, it would be great to see a slug line develop to Tyson's here!

Morning!

My fiancÚ and I are new to "slug" and we are going to be commuting from Telegraph/S. Van Dorn area to Georgetown (passing the Pentagon). Does anyone have an update if this location for pickup will be available soon?

Telegraph Rd in Alexandria?

See, this is the problem with VDOT... They need to start digging deeper in the dictionary for road names.


Sorry to be the bearer of bad news: There's a Telegraph Rd in Woodbridge, near Potomac Mills. That's where the new lot is.
