Afternoon Poll: Will You Take The Silver Line Daily?

Commemorative SmarTrip Card/Credit: MetroFour days until the Silver Line begins carrying passengers. Reston Now wants to know: Will it change your commute?

While the Silver Line will connect Reston and Tysons Corner each other and to points inside the Beltway, in D.C. and beyond, it is not the workday answer for everyone.

For instance, a large number of Reston-area workers travel within Reston or other areas of Fairfax County not served by Metro. Those who can now take Metro to Reston from Arlington or D.C. to get to work, still would have to find a way to get from Wiehle-Reston East to, say, offices in Reston Town Center.

And still others say parking at Wiehle-Reston East ($4.85 daily) combined with rush hour Metro fares ($11.80 round trip daily to Farragut North, for example) make carpooling and parking downtown a more attractive option.

Take our poll and tell us in the comments below where you go for work and whether how you get there will change.
