What's new with slugging and sluglines.

Cardinal Forest - Are you There? I received a report that the slug line "Cardinal Force" in Springfield may not be operating. If you currently use this line please make a comment on the message board forum. [Go to forum]

Pentagon Bus Loop Opens: Beginning Thursday, May 23, 2019 the new Bus Loop around South Parking Lot Lanes 27 to 33 (the Pork Chop) will be open for all buses (shuttles buses, Metro Buses, Commuter Buses, etc.), and authorized vehicles traveling in and out of the Pentagon Transit Center (PTC) (See attachment). Normal slug operations will continue. Vehicles will continue to use the current entrance at Eads Street and North Rotary Road to enter and exit the Pork Chop. Pedestrians will use the newly constructed sidewalk and ramps to access the vehicles for pick-up. Slug shelters will be re-installed for pedestrians and signage will be in place.

Metro Blue and Yellow Lines Close for Reconstruction: Starting Saturday, May 25th, the six BLUE and YELLOW line stations South of Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport will be closed for full platform reconstruction and major station improvements.To expedite construction and minimize customer inconvenience, the following stations will remain closed through Sunday, September 8th, 2019.

The station closures are part of Metro's three-year Platform Improvement Project that will completely reconstruct the outdoor platforms at 20 Metrorail stations, making platforms safer and more accessible for customers with disabilities, while also addressing safety concerns and longstanding structural issues.

New Springfield Survey! An effort has been underway regarding the slug lines at Springfield. Please take the 4 question survey below.
[Springfield Survey]

Navy Yard from Rt. 234: Many slugs near Rt. 234 drive past this commuter lot and head to Horner Road. Why? Their final destination is the Washington Navy Yard but in order to get their, they must slug to L'Enfant to catch the shuttle to WNY. With the tremendous growth in the area, we are trying to build the Navy Yard as a new destination. [Go to forum]

Bob's Parking lot to Close Nov 2019: Due to the building of the new Springfield parking garage this lot is scheduled to close for approximately 2 years. Slugs will lose about 278 spaces and slug pickup stations during construction. Fairfax County is working with the commuters to find alternative space for parking and pickup locations. [Go to forum]

TMP Newsletter March 2019: 395 Express Lanes/South Parking Construction Updates - With the warmer and improving Spring weather, construction work is progressing steadily at the “Pork Chop” to support the bus loop construction and along the Eads Street interchange. Please continue to pay close attention to signage to ensure safety around construction activities. Construction in the Pork Chop area is anticipated to finish by end of May, subject to weather conditions and unplanned events. More information about the final traffic pattern will be provided in the next two months. Follow us on Facebook at WHSTransportation and on Twitter @WHS_Transport: #395ExpressInfo for details.

The temporary relocation of Route 610 Stafford and Mine Road slug stations will remain at the Kiss and Ride area on N. Rotary Rd during the Eads Street construction.

Tickets Issued to Crystal City Drivers: It was reported that police are issuing tickets to drivers at the 23rd street slug line in Crystal City due to new signs that were erected that states: "NO PARKING, STANDING OR STOPPING". I have contacted Arlington County Commuter Services for their assistance in getting this resolved. [Click here for info on the forum]

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.
