West Springfield (VA)-Finding a Home Close to a Slug Line

If you are just moving to West Springfield (VA) from another part of the country the term "slug line" make you go YUCK.  However for anyone who has lived in the area for awhile the term "slug line" means a great way to get from a West Springfield neighborhood to the Pentagon or other major DC employment areas.

One of the questions that anyone relocated to the area asks is about public transportation options.  Once newcomers understand the value of a slug line...it is FREE then they wonder if they can find a home within a mile of a slug line. 

The good news is that the local MLS does give us the option to do a map search based on homes within a radius and it is easy to provide a list of available homes within a specified area.  For example this map shows a one mile radius around four specific slug lines close to popular West Springfield neighborhoods.

Cindy:  'Slug Line', wow.  I would think you would want to make a new name, but it's a great attention grabber.

Gabe-Slug lines do sound yucky but they are a great option for commuters in our area and have been around a long time!

Worthy of a re-blog.  Your knowledge of Springfield VA and the commuting options available to new residents is evident from your years of living in the area.
