Hello Everyone!
I am relocating to the area possibly - trying out a job in the Herndon area and am staying with a friend in Gainesville. I am wanting to know if there are public transportation options to Herndon from Gainesville or ride sharing boards or websites to use? I have been using my car, however; the car is becoming unreliable at this point and looking for back up ideas.
Thank you in advance for any information! It is greatly appreciated!

I think the Omni Ride bus from Linton Hall goes to the Tysons Corner Metro. Not sure if you could possibly take a bus from there to Herndon.

Unfortunately, I think any transit options between Gainesville and Herndon would be indirect (i.e. require an out-of-the-way transfer) and probably take longer than driving.

My advice is to (if you can) talk with your future coworkers in Herndon and have your friend talk to his/her neighbors in Gainesville. Find out what other people do. You may come across an informal carpool group.

Hopefully, someone on City-Data might be able to chime in with a tip.

Good Luck.

Slug lines don't originate in Gainesville nor do they drop at Tysons.

That's too bad.
