Ride On bus service expands on Sunday

Schedules for all Ride On routes — with the sole exception of 301 — are being adjusted. This will cause service to be restored to 90% of pre-pandemic levels from Sunday.

Montgomery County, Maryland is bolstering its Ride On bus service starting Sunday.

Schedules for all Ride On routes — with the sole exception of 301 — are being adjusted. This will result in service being restored to 90% of pre-pandemic levels.



One of the notable improvements is Route 4: it will be extended — from Connecticut and Howard Avenues in Kensington to the Wheaton subway station.

“These service improvements are a step in the right direction,” County Department of Transportation Director Chris Conklin said in a statement. “They provide access and opportunity for residents who need it.”

The new timetables are available on the Ride On website.

The Ride On service remains free until at least July 2, and while masks are no longer required, they are still encouraged.

The county also reminds passengers that the interiors of buses — as well as their filtering and ventilation systems — are treated with disinfectant.
