COVID-19 Ride On Essential Plus Bus Service

Montgomery County's Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will expand Ride On bus service starting Sunday, July 5, to support County Executive Marc Elrich's Phase 2 reopening plan as the COVID-19 health crisis eases. Changes beginning this weekend include activating additional buses to provide more trips on about half of the routes in service. Changes are being made in response to increased demand, current traffic conditions and to reincorporate some ?diversion? stops that had been temporarily removed from service.

The expanded "Essential Plus" plan starting July 5 will maintain the same 53 weekday routes, 49 Saturday routes and 42 Sunday routes that have been in service since June 7.

Service hours and bus frequency will be changed on weekdays and weekends, and riders are encouraged to visit the Essential Plus web page
