If I was going to live near either the Ballston or East Falls Church Metro stations and needed to commute out to Chantilly (specifically the intersection of 50 and 28), how long would it take?

What would be the best route?

Thanks for the help.

Forever... hahahaha, just kidding... but seriously, why would you want to live in Ballston & drive to Chantilly?! Depends on what time you leave, even though you are reverse commuting, there is still traffic. Always. Except in the middle of the night.

Ballston to Chantilly I think minimum 1 hour, probably more like an hour 15-20 min., more if it rains. Depending on where you are going, you would jump on 50 West out of Arlington & drive. You can get 28 from 50 if you need to.

Ballston to Chantilly isn't that bad of a commute at all. It will take you approximately 30 mins in the am and 40-50 in the pm. The longer afternoon commute is because of the holdup on 28 south and 66 east inside the beltway. There's another thread on this forum about the same commute, you may want to check that out as well.

Dalren -

I think eastli is referring to the thread I started a few weeks ago (link)

I am in the same situation: just took a job in Chantilly but I would like to live in Ballston/orange line area.

For whatever it's worth - What I gathered from this forum and from talking to friends in the area is that it seems like it will be about 45min getting there and an hour+ getting home

Hope that helps
