New Rt 3 - Gordon Road  Slug Line Starting.  Effective 3 June 2002 Fredericksburg commuters will have a new slug line to use. Todd, a fellow slug, has done a great job organizing a new slug line to start 3 June 02 at the Gordon Road lot off of Rt 3. Send your comments to him at:

Here are the basics:

  • As far as the morning commute, all destinations will be supported, Pentagon, Crystal City, Roslyn, 18th, 14th, LaEnfant, Navy yard..etc.... For the return trip in the afternoon, all riders and drivers will use the Pentagon Fredericksburg Line which is next to the Rt.17 line. After the line stabilizes and grows, we will branch out from the Pentagon for the return trips. The Pentagon will be the ONLY return point for now. Requested times are 5:30am-7:15am (Rt.3) and 3:45pm-5:30pm(pentagon).
