New slug line to Alexandria
A new "slug line" starting later this month will help drivers and passengers zip along HOV lanes from Woodbridge straight to Alexandria (to the Eisenhower Metro station or Alexandria VRE stop).
Drivers can pick up "slugs" waiting near the Woodbridge VRE Kiss-and-Ride beginning Tuesday, October 19th, according to slug-lines.com, which wants help spreading the word to jump-start the line to make it as useful as possible.
The great thing, though, is that if there don't seem to be many drivers picking up slugs, or if passengers' plans change, they can hop on the VRE.
The slug line will be welcomed by commuters to inner-ring Virginia, since most slug lines go to downtown DC. One such major downtown slug line will make changes tomorrow, Wednesday the 6th:
The current slug location on 14th Street between H Street and New York Ave will move to 15th Street between H Street and New York Ave. Questions can be directed to the District Department of Transportation at (202) 671-0682.
