Tent Bus Registration – Virginia

Our primary University Row pickup location (or Virginia Hub pickup point) is at Whitlow’s on Wilson in Clarendon. Registration is located in front of the restaurant, starting at 8:00am and ending at 10:15am. Don’t be late, or you may be left behind!


Bus Boarding by Zones

To help limit the craziness and discourage long lines at bus loading, we will continue with our system of Loading Zones this year. When you register at Whitlow’s, you will be assigned a loading zone. This zone ticket will allow you to board a bus any time from that zone number on till the end of boarding, so if your friends come later and you want to ride with them, just wait till their zone comes up. If you want to ride an early bus, please come to Whitlow’s early!


Our Virginia Spoke pickup location is at Crystal City Sports Pub, located at 529 23rd Street South in Arlington. There is ample free parking available nearby (be sure to read the signs to ensure it is free on Saturday) and CCSP is 3 blocks from Crystal City Metro (yellow line).  Registration starts at 9:00am, and ends at 10:00am. Late arrivals will be walking to the Row!


Tent Bus Registration – DC

Arrival at the Proper Ticketed Registration Location Required

Also, be sure to check your ticket to make sure you arrive at the correct registration location.  A Dupont ticketholder will not be accepted at Clarendon and vice versa. If you arrive at a pickup point with the wrong ticket, we will have to direct you to the correct registration location (ie: we see an Uber ride in your immediate future).
