The county’s Department of Transportation plans to increase Ride On bus service to 90% of pre-pandemic levels beginning Sunday, May 8, officials announced.
“We know that many residents depend upon the Ride On bus system for daily trips throughout the county such as work, daycare, health services and other essential trips,” Chris Conklin, DOT’s director, said in a press release. “These service improvements are a step in the right direction. They provide access and opportunity to residents who need it.”
All Ride On routes except Route 301 will have scheduling changes, which will be posted online and available in print.
Riders also can plan trips online with Ride On Real Time and get the latest information @RideOnMCT on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube.
The expanded service also will include a direct connection between the Wheaton Metro Station and the Kensington MARC station.
Passengers are no longer required to wear masks on the bus, though officials still strongly encourage their use and drivers have masks for those who want one.
Ride On service remains free until at least July 2.
