What's new with slugging and sluglines.

DDOT Meeting with Slugs! DDOT has agreed to meet with slugs to discuss the challenges faced by VA slug riders and drivers. Seating is limited. However, we are hoping to gather a list of concerns to present to DDOT. [Click here for info on the forum].

Tuesday, June 19 at 3:30-4:30 pm
55 M Street SE, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20003

Police Issuing Tickets to Slugs/Drivers??: As recent as May 21st, it has been reported to me that police are threatening to issue tickets to drivers who stop for slugs at 14th and Pennsylvania. Earlier this month other reports were received for 14th and New York. Perhaps The District Department of Transportation can help!

Ridematching from Rossyln: If you are travelling from Rossyln to Stafford or Fredericksburg, did you know about "ridematching"? Get more information on the Rosslyn page. [Click here]

14th and New York: Slugs and Drivers - are DDOT officials preventing you from slugging? There have been reports that police are not allowing drivers to pick up slugs. If this has happened to you, please let me know!

14th and New York: There is a "revival" of sorts for those travelling from 14th and NY to Bob's in Springfield. For many years, this location was one of the most active lines on 14th street but when DDOT move the line to the side street, it almost died. Reports are that it is on a rebound and growing. For those travelling to Bob's, please hold up a sign to let drivers know.

Facebook Group for Springfield: There is a very active Facebook Group that focuses on Springfield slugging issues.

Slugging is a term used to describe a unique form of commuting found in the Washington, DC area.   It has thousands of vehicles at its disposal, moves thousands of commuters daily, and the best part, itís FREE! Not only is it free, but it gets people to and from work faster than the typical bus, metro, or train. It's unique because it is not a government sponsored commuter program, but one created out of ingenuity from local citizens to solve commuter problems.
