Ride On Changing Bus Schedules May 9 to Increase Service, Efficiency

Montgomery County’s Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will be adjusting the Ride On bus service schedules beginning Sunday, May 9 to increase overall service and improve efficiency.

“The changes reflect the continuing shift of resources toward schedule patterns prior to the COVID-19 health crisis,” according to a county press release announced Wednesday.

All County-operated transit services are to remain free of charge at least through June 30. All Ride On routes, including Flash, MCDOT’s high-frequency service operating on Colesville Road/Columbia Pike (US 29) and Lockwood Drive, are in full operation.

According to MCDOT, routes that will be having schedule changes and some improved frequencies include: 5681011141719202122, 23, 262829303233343943465254555659737981.

Ridership capacity still remains limited to allow social distancing and riders are required to wear a face covering to board. All buses have a supply of face coverings to offer riders who are not able to provide their own.
