I would take a Metro bus or Fairfax connector bus. Don't even bother...

Well, you end up being tied to the bus schedule with taxis as your backup if you can't make it home on time. That does work for many people though.

well, its just my personal experience that i say 123. 123 doesnt really get backed up in the am until you are almost out of the town of vienna near tysons. reverse commute, jermantown rd backing up to courthouse rd in vienna (going towards fairfax).

The personal experiences of most people are more likely to be that the light at 123 and Old Courthouse serves as the morning-rush gatekeeper for entry into Tysons proper. In order to moderate Tysons traffic, that light creates peak-hour creepy-crawly backups famous for extending back as far as Sutton Road. On the way home at night, the light at 123 and Nutley serves a similar purpose, creating bumper-to-bumper zones back to Westwood Country Club. Once past all that, one is apt to encounter another batch of backups due to the mess at Hunter Mill, Miller, and Jermantown Roads in Oakton. The best bet for all is simply to stay off of 123 during rush hour in either direction.

Even in Tysons 123 isn't bad in the morning. I take it from the Oakton/Vienna area through Tysons to 495. Rarely ever have issues. Evenings coming back is much worse.

Maybe just take I-66 East to get to 495.
