Ride On Bus Service Will Increase Starting Sunday, March 13

Ride On bus service will be increased by the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) beginning Sunday, March 13, with the new schedule returning service to 86 percent of pre-COVID levels.

The service change will reflect a 6 percent increase from the temporary January reduction due to the number of employees who were sick from or exposed to COVID-19 during the recent surge.

Routes that will resume service or increase frequency include:
  • Ride On Flex, the on-demand service in Wheaton/Glenmont and Rockville, will resume service.

  • Ride On extRa, the limited-stop service along MD 355 between Lakeforest Transit Center and Medical Center, will resume service.

  • Flash, the bus rapid transit bus line servicing US 29, will resume full weekday service and will continue to service the Food and Drug Administration campus in White Oak.
