Starting Monday, January 30, Montgomery County’s Ride On bus system began partnering with the Maryland Transit Administration MARC Train to ease commutes for Germantown MARC train passengers. A new shuttle service, Ride On Route 94, is transporting passengers during peak commuting times between the Park and Ride Lot at Kingsview, located at Clopper Road and Kingsview Village Avenue, and the Germantown MARC station.
Morning shuttle service leaves from Kingsview for the MARC Station at 7:25, 7:42 and 8:02 a.m. In the evening, the shuttle departs from the MARC Station at 4:21, 4:36, 5:13, 6:05, 6:29, 6:51, 7:19 and 8:01 p.m.
Riders who have a MARC weekly, MARC monthly or TLC ticket can show them to the bus operator and ride free, the same as on all Ride On buses. Other riders will be charged the regular fare of $1.50 for SmarTrip users or $1.70 for passengers paying the fare with cash or other Ride On fare media.
