If so, do you know if the Transportation Subsidy (don't know the exact term) will cover parking at Metro or bus stations?

 
Transportation subsidy is not to be used to cover parking costs.

Yes, I'm at the PTO (since last September) - - I don't know about parking at the metro stations.  I occasionally drive to work and park at the garage at the PTO.  Parking is $10/day or you can get your ticket validated and pay $7/$8.

Thanks again, Anastasia.
 
I'm struggling to decide where to rent an apartment, in Alexandria.  I'd prefer not to drive to work at all if possible. Originally, I was more leaned toward renting near a Metro subway station (even as far away as Rosslyn). Now after reading your suggestion, I am also trying to find apartments with DASH stop within walking distance.
 
Upon looking at the DASH system map, I just don't know where to start or how to decide: so many routes!
 
I'd like to live not too close to USPTO, yet not more than 20 minutes bus ride. Had never been to that area (Alexandria), it is difficult for me to evaluate. Even with maps and other things, it is not easy. Calling the apartments will always get positive answers about themselves.
 
Can you give me some suggestions to narrow down the search? Which areas of Alexandria, which streets, or any suggestions on which apartment?
 
I am willing to pay in the neighborhood of $1300/month for a one-bedroom apartment unit. A bus stop (outbound to USPTO) close by of the apartment is preferred.
 
Thanks!

Try to get a short-term lease that will allow you to look around (in person) at other places and not be tied down to one place for too long just in case you decide you don't like it and want/need to move somewhere else.  I am renting at a place called Glebe House which offers three-month leases on furnished or unfurnished one bedroom and studios.

Hello community,
 
I have a unique situation that I have not heard anyone speak of yet in this forum.  I received an email in late May stating that I have been recommended for employment in Tech Center “X” and to fill out the appropriate forms.  I immediately complied.  I had not received an official offer.  After communicating with an individual in HR I was notified about 3 weeks later that I was not extended a formal offer yet because they are “having an extremely hard time finding an art unit that can take 3 veterans” that must be hired before they can hire anyone else off of the referral list as per their hiring policy.  The SPE that I interviewed with could not provide any assistance or advice.  I am wondering if anyone out there can address my situation.  It should be considered that I told HR that I could not start until September 17 PTA class.  Just concerned that there may be other reasons holding up my offer and that it may take until the end of time to be officially brought on board and time is ticking.  Any thoughts?
