I'll be starting a new job soon but due to lease conditions, I won't be able to relocate for some time so I'll be commuting. Luckily, my workplace is less than a block from the Dunn Loring Metro and I live less than a mile from the Greenbelt metro. I realize the commute might be difficult but can I make it work? I've all but ruled out driving since the beltway and detour through DC would make it ridiculous.

I think the only sane and reasonable commute is taking the metro. Driving around 495 in Montgomery County would be too much and very unnecessary.

I once commuted from Beltsville to Burke on 495. it was okay for a few months, but not more than that. Metro is the way to go from College Park/Greenbelt.

Greenbelt to Dunn Loring will be a little over an hour each way on the train, according to the WMATA trip planner; you'll probably be able to get a seat for a lot of the trip, too. It's a doable ride, but it might make sense to invest in a Kindle or something ... lots of time to read
