Please help! My husband and I are having the great debate! I'm from northern VA and he is from Frederick,MD. We both work in downtown DC and are looking to buy a house within the next 6 months. Here is our dilemma go to MD where all his family is or stay in NOVA? My only concern with maryland is the horrific traffic, because right now we use the HOV in VA and our commute door to door is roughly an hour from Woodbridge. Does anyone live in German town/ Clarksburg/ Gaithersburg area that commutes to downtown during peak time? If so please let me know how long it takes! Thanks

I live in Gaithersburg and drive in to downtown every day. Good thing about the commute is that I have options, where as in Woodbridge you don't. If I leave my house at 6 am, I could be in DC by 6.40. After 6.30 am it's rediculous and unpredictable, and can take anywhere from and hour to two., but then if you use the HOV, it will help...a lil...

Driving: an hour or more.
Metro: or bus and Metro: 40 min to 1.5 hours.
MARC: no idea.

From Gaithersburg:

Driving, no traffic, got to Union Station downtown in about 35-40 minutes. Take 270 to 495 W to GW Parkway to 395 into the city (fastest IMO).

Traffic, probably at least twice as long, depending.
Metro: take the red line into town, it depends on where you go. It's about 25 minutes from Shady Grove to Friendship Heights, platform to platform.

If metro is an option, then you can catch it from Shady Grove.
