Does someone living in Georgetown but working in Alexandria absolutely need a car? What is public transportation like between these two areas?

I live in Alexandria. I’ve had coworkers who lived in DC and commuted sans car.
I’d say, it depends on where in Georgetown and where in Alex. (specifically how far each end is from a Metro stop).
In all likelihood, though, you do not “absolutely need” a car.
I lived in Alexandria but worked in DC. I didn’t have a car and it suck diddly-ucked. The metro closes at 1 or 2 and you can’t hail a cab.
ooops i just realized i am not a DC based reader, never mind my comment, then
