Damn you, Blue! Now I have to spend 2:14 listening to music this AM because I can't leave in the middle of an Elvis song.

Elvis at his best. Early when he could still hit the high notes. For some reason he couldn't hit them after serving in the Army. (Now that's a set up line if I've ever heard one.) :mg:

There are no "stations" between Arlington and Herndon or Arlington and Sterling.

That's a pretty big gap there.

They need something in McLean (or Great Falls).   And stay away from Tysons!

Tysons would be perfect if they can figure out a location where they can get out in a hurry

Everyone I know who works there has similar feelings

It's not that bad if you know the ropes and have a little patience.

I would recommend that they look into using the parking lot at the Tysons DMV on Gallows Road.  After 5:00 the place is a ghost town and they have plenty of space to pick people up.

Great idea. Their model so far have been stations at restaurants/sports bars to drive business. It would be interesting to see if they stick to that.

There's a stretch of the median on the inner loop, you could meet there and then have the bus hop on 267....

I stopped hanging out at the DMV a few years ago, after I quit drinking, but I do remember how quiet it is after work hours.  LOL!

To follow up on this question, will drinking be allowed on the bus?  Being able to bring a beer or two and drink on the way to the game might be a nice benefit...

I'd bring beers for the bus ride there, a couple to walk into the game with, and one to toast victory with on the ride home.
