COVID-19 Ride On Changes Effective September 27, 2020

Montgomery County's Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will adjust Ride On bus service schedules starting Sunday, September 27, to expand service in areas with growing demand and shift resources back toward schedule patterns in place prior to the COVID-19 health crisis. All Ride On-branded bus routes and Ride On extRa routes will be in service at an overall restoration of nearly 80% of pre-pandemic levels. The on-demand Flex service remains suspended.

Highlights from the upcoming changes include:

  • The Ride On Real Time web application will resume full functionality for the first time since health crisis impacts began.
  • Increased service frequency on 26 routes based on recent ridership demand patterns.
  • Route 8 will continue operations on Sundays.
  • Routes 52, 53, and 63 will return to weekday service only.
  • Routes 23 and 83 will no longer operate on Sundays.
  • Routes 66 and 67 will reduce service hours from all day to peak periods only.
Operational changes implemented by MCDOT during the health emergency for riders boarding buses will remain in place. All passengers are required to wear a face covering to board and must continue wearing the covering for the entire time riding on a bus. All buses have a supply of face coverings for those who cannot provide their own.
