Pretty awful I imagine. Do you really want to live in Herndon?

I used to do the opposite commute and always felt sorry for the people going the other way. It looked like a parking lot over there. Plus 267 doesn't go all the way to Arlington so you're going to have to find some route to get you the rest of the way that doesn't include the HOV Custis Memorial Parkway inside the beltway.

Eh, its not awful. I did basically that commute (to mclean). Take 267 to 123 exit. Take 123 towards mclean, then go Old Dominion or 123 to GW Parkway depending on what part of Arlington.

Also there is a really great bus that runs down the middle of the toll road from Herndon Monroe (or possibly Reston) all the way to Rosslyn, and in a year there will be the Wielhe Station option, which would be about a 12 minute drive on the back roads and then you can metro in (about 20 minute ride to Ballston).

I think the 267 corridor has a lot of transit and driving options so its not a bad place to live and you can get some good deals in Herndon.

I would plan on about a 50 minute to an hour and hope the Toll Road monster doesnt get you (once every 2 months it seems like a major incident happens that crushes the Toll Road to a crawl).

Default Carpooling from Reston/Herndon to Rosslyn

Hello -> I saw your posting, and would like to know if you are interested in ridesharing from Reston/Herndon to Rosslyn. I have a car and an underground parking space in a building that is about 1 block from the Rosslyn Metro station. My hours are 7:30 to 4:30 Monday through Friday, but I can change this to 8 to 5. My previous carpool person retired, so I am actively looking for a new person to carpool and use the HOV-2 lanes on I-66 to travel to and from Rosslyn, from the Reston area.

Hope to hear from you soon!
Alex Willman
