Hi, I am exploring Clarksburg to make a purchase and am evaluating the commute times from Clarksburg Village to Metro/DC and also other amenities.

1. Is there a bus service from Clarksburg?
2. What is the realistic timeframe for the CCT?
3. Snowden farm parkway: How far is it from being connected to Rt-27?
4. What about foreman blvd extension?
5. Is there a grocery store (even a small one) in Clarskburg? Germantown is close by, but having one closer is better.

Are there any big improvements/developments that will make Clarksburg desirable (for resale value)?

Thanks.

Clarksburg is a horrible place for commuting. I wouldn't even wish it upon my worst enemy.

There are no supermarket nearby. You have to go either Germantown or Frederick.

For commuting to DC? Yes!

For commuting to Gaithersburg, Germantown, or Frederick? Not so bad.

Clarksburg to DC? If you want to spend 2 hours to get to work each day every day in rush hour. Live closer. Diversity is okay, really. It doesn't itch. It won't leave a mark.

I believe there are grocery stores in Damascus. There was when I lived there in the early 90's

Can anyone comment on the commute from Clarksburg to the DC Metro area? Are there any commuter transportation options yet? See the posts above were from a few years ago.

Please get out a map. Clarksburg is an even worse option than Gaithersburg. I believe you are making the right choice if you stick to Columbia, or closer to the MARC train.
