ICC Commuter Bus Route 205 Service to Stop August 1

The Maryland Transit Authority (MTA) has announced that it will stop service on the Intercounty Connector (ICC) commuter bus route 205 effective August 1, 2013. The route runs from the College Park metro station to Germantown and has continuously had low ridership. MTA will work with customers to help identify other possible transit options. The savings will be used to alleviate overcrowding on other bus service.

MTA’s decisions were heavily influenced by testimonies from bus riders and elected officials during a series of public hearings held  June 4 - 6.

See more information on the status of ICC routes. Customers can also call the MTA Transit Information Center Monday through Friday, 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., at 410-539-5000. TTY 410-539-3497.

  1. That's too bad. Better marketing of this service would definitely have helped to keep the service running.
