So I just got a job in DC working for the Department of VA and plan on living in Chester, MD. Just looking for advice on the commute from Chester, MD to DC. Is it easier to drive or should I consider just driving to Odenton and taking the MARC to New Carrollton and then the Metro to the McPherson Station? Thanks.

I'm pretty sure there are commuter busses right from Kent Island to D.C. A co-worker of mine rode them.

Exactly, just drive to US-50 and Route 8 and park and take the nice comfy coach style commuter bus to Downtown DC. It would be way faster than driving or taking metro and cheaper too. Parking is free at commuter bus lots, not metro lots and the buses can use the HOV lanes on 50.

I have to look into that commuter bus too since I'll be living in Cambridge and working in DC.

Wow -- I worked in DC for 33 years, and never heard of anyone commuting from as far as Cambridge. But at least Route 50 is all wide and straight, and it's not a particularly icy or snowy area.
