5A bus is 5 bucks each way and leaves from Rosslyn or le'fant plaza

5A bus for sure. More convenient, cheaper, and often faster than the metro. Easy to metro or uber to where you need to be once you get to Rosslyn or L'Enfant.

5A bus to Rosslyn and then metro to DCA

Uber is $45ish. There is a metro bus and the Washington flyer bus that goes there. They are less than $10. There's the super shuttle or whatever it's called for $30.

Your correct metro doesn't go that far but you can uber to the reston-whiele metro station and then metro the rest of the way

Rent a car for the day and drive. Will cost you well under $100 round trip.

^shit plan. What is OP going to do with the car once they get toDC? I'll tell you, pay for parking. Grab an uber to Reston, take the metro into the city. Less the $7 bucks one way on metro

That shit plan arrow was for strategist 1 (whatever that is)

Thanks for all the feedback 🐟 ! I'll be there for more than a day so rental car won't work, but definitely some good options

The firm pays much better (1800 hours, flexible wfh) but I feel like the experience in house would go further in becoming a GC down the road. Please help!
