Commuting to work from suburbs in DC area

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Redwood DC-SP98366576

So you have decided to look for a home. Using our site FranklyMLS, you have an option that is not available on most other search sites.

Gas prices continue to rise and the cost of driving to and from the office is becoming a concern for many.  Realizing that using the Metro system may be your best option, we have put together information gathered from several sites for your use. You will notice that there is a box labeled "distance calculator from"  where you can enter an address. This gives you the opportunity to see how far a certain home is from your place of work. It also can be used to determine how far the home is located from public transportation.

I have listed the Red Line metro station addresses below as well as the Marc Brunswick line location addresses. Copy and paste them into the site and you will have an idea of your commute to public rails.

Johm, there are some great web sites about putlic transportation in the DC area.  Metro has one that gives estimates on commuting times at different parts of the day.

Pat..... love the Metro website.....just thought that people moving to the area and some already here might not have knowledge of it. Also, seemed like a good idea to put all the info in one post. The Marc Train website is not easy to navigate.

Thanks for sharing
