“We bid on a house on Delafield in Petworth. I work at 13th & K Street and wanted to know if you knew of carpools or the best way to get downtown. Any information would greatly be appreciated.”
Well, first let me say congratulations. Second, I believe there are types of folks, the bus folks and the metro folks. I happen to be a strong devotee of the metro. Now you are sort of between two metro stops – Petworth and Ft. Totten. Since you need to get to Farragut North, I’d recommend you take the Ft. Totten Metro which has the Red Line so you can shoot straight down to Farragut North without having to switch trains. I’m guessing you are probably a 15 minute walk to the Ft. Totten station so you may want to find out what the bus routes are so you don’t have to walk home when it’s too cold or too late at night.
So for those up in North Country – how do you get downtown? Is there a bus near Delafield that’ll take you all the way downtown or would you recommend the metro?
