Directions for Ordering Line Standing Service

When requesting Line Standing services, please have the following information ready:

  • Building name
  • Hearing room number
  • Name of comittee and the name or topic of the hearing
  • Time and date of hearing
  • Time you want us to start waiting
  • Name of the person attending the hearing
  • Hearing attendee's cell phone number

Washington Express will also provide you with the cell phone number of our staff member doing your line standing upon request. If desired, we will call your attendee's cell phone 15 minutes before the hearing begins to determine their estimated time of arrival. For security purposes, our line standing person will ask your attendee for a business card or ID to verify their identity.

Washington Express will call you and suggest an earlier line standing or seat holding starting time if the demand for a particular hearing appears to exceed available seating in that room.
