How To Beat Rush Hour Traffic Between Woodbridge VA And Washington DC

Find Out How The Park And Ride Lots Can Help You Beat The Traffic

You may find park and ride lots all over Woodbridge Virginia.  You'll find lots at the on-ramps to I-95.

The name of the game is getting on to the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes that run up and down I-95.  Folks in the regular traffic lanes may be grinding through stop-and-go traffic, but you can use the park and ride lots to gain access to the HOV lanes four different ways.

First, you can catch an express bus from the park and ride lots that takes you to your destination, or to a subway station that takes you to your office.  Express busses are inexpensive, and some employers will pay a portion of your bus pass fees.  Express busses go flying up the HOV lanes at 65 mph.

Second, you can meet your car pool at the park and ride lots.  Just drive your car from your house to the lot, hop in your car pool, and get on the HOV lanes.

Third, you can join a van pool that takes you to your work place.  Van pools are inexpensive, and just as with with busses, your employer may pay a portion of your monthly van pool fees.

Fourth.... Ah number four!  The slug lines!  Perhaps you're transferring to the DC area, and you've heard of the slug lines.  Here's how it works.  A driver who is going to the Pentagon, and she wants to get on the HOV lanes.  She can drive to the park and ride lot, go to the Pentagon line, pick up two or three passengers - slugs - and away she goes up the HOV lanes at 70 mph.  Or perhaps she wants to save on gas.  She can park her at the park and ride lot, go to the Pentagon slug line, and catch a ride up the HOV lanes at 70 mph.

Motorcycles also have free access to the HOV lanes.  So if you have a motorcycle, you can ride the HOV lanes for free.
