Every day, people in White Flint and across the DC area travel to work, school, or other activities. A select few are what a recent Washington Post article calls “mega-commuters,” who travel more than hour to work each day, whether by car, transit, or another mode.
There aren’t many of these in White Flint: according to these awesome maps generated from Census data, more than 90 percent of commuters in the 20852 zip code travel less than 30 minutes each way to work. However, we imagine that among them there are some pretty ridiculous commuting stories, especially by transit.
That’s why we’re hosting our first-ever contest: What’s your most memorable transit experience in Montgomery County? Was it an unexpected bus detour, a bike lane to nowhere or even a Metro wedding? (My most memorable transit experience was when I convinced my college roommate to take the bus to the art store in Rockville and he almost lost his supplies – and his life – crossing Rockville Pike on the way back.)
You can leave your submission in the comments, post it on the Friends of White Flint’s Facebook page or on our Twitter page, @White_Flint. We’ll pick the best one, and the winner will get a $52 gift certificate to Seasons 52 on Rockville Pike.
We’re looking forward to your stories!
