Am thinking of visiting an old friend at Thanksgiving I used to know when I lived in DC who now lives in Sterling, Virginia. Since I want to go into DC, I am wondering if there is a metro way to get there? What line would I take? I wonder how far it is from Sterling to the end of the line, also? Thanks.

There is no metro going there.

Sterling is waaaaaaaaay out there. I'm sure there's some sort of commuter bus that goes from the vienna metro to sterling, but i dont spend much time in that area.

Tootsie..I definitely agree with Jim. If you are driving, your best bet would be to take the beltway to the Dulles Toll rd and head out to Sterling that way. Since I only drove out there from time to time and did not use public transportation, I'm not familiar with the bus schedule in that area.

If you have a car, but want to take the Metro into DC proper, I believe the farthest out Metro station in your direction is Vienna on the orange line.

Yeah, there is no metro, but if you don't have a car and absolutely need to get there, you can always get off at West Falls Church Metro to Dulles Airport and cab it into Sterling or take a bus.

Oh wow...guess I ask my friend if she can drive me around to see my old haunts when she isn't working. She works out that way, and, frankly, it just never occurred to me that she wouldn't be near a metro line until we started talking about my visiting. Now let's see if I can even get an airline ticket today...

Or use Metrobus 5A (http://www.wmata.com/timetables/view.cfm?line=49 - broken link) from Rosslyn. Would save a lot of money compared to a cab.
