Starting April 1:
sluggers who ride from the Herndon/Monroe bus transfer station to Downtown D.C. will have a pickup point for a reverse commute. Pickup will be curbside at the US Post Office, 1750 Pennsylvania Ave. NW (2 blks S of Farragut W Metro), 4:45-5:30 p.m., Mon.-Fri.

As a reminder, there is a well established slug line from Herndon-Monroe Park and Ride Lot to Rosslyn and Downtown DC in the morning.

Herndon/Reston Slug Line

Thanks for this! A Herndon friend of mine just started working at the Deloitte office in Rosslyn. I just forwarded the info to him.

No problem.

Going to DC, there is always people waiting for rides.

Has anyone tried this slug line yet? How's it working out?

This is good news. I used to commute to DC from the Wiehle Ave P&R and drivers looking for slugs/sluggers just used to pull up where we were waiting for the buses and tell us where they were heading. I'm glad it's a little more formalized. Thanks for sharing!

It is still not very well organized. Drivers still just pull up to those waiting for buses looking for people. I do it occasionally when my "committed" slug is out for the day. I've never failed to get a rider at Wiehle.
