Beginning January 13, Montgomery County Ride On will offer a new Route 94 bus service between Clarksburg and the Germantown MARC train station. The service is called “Meet the MARC” because if the evening MARC train runs late, the Ride On bus will wait for the train to arrive. In partnership with the Maryland Transit Administration, the Route 94 will offer rush hour service between the train station and bus stops on Clarksburg Road, Snowden Farm Parkway, Little Seneca Parkway and Meadow Mist Road. Passengers using the new service will be dropped off and picked up at the lower level west side bus area adjoining the train station.
Morning bus service will leave from Clarksburg Road and Gateway Center Drive at 5:38, 6:02, 6:38, 7:01 and 7:46 a.m. and make nine stops in Clarksburg. In the evening, the shuttle will depart the MARC Station for Clarksburg at 4:21, 4:35, 5:20, 5:48, 6:33, 7:12, 7:33 and 8:12 p.m. and make 10 stops in Clarksburg. On Fridays only, an earlier bus at 2:21 p.m. will also operate from the MARC Station to Clarksburg.
Riders who have a MARC weekly, MARC monthly or TLC (Transit Link Card) ticket may simply show it to the bus operator and ride free, the same as on all Ride On buses. Other riders will be charged the regular $1.60 fare for SmarTrip Card users or $1.80 for passengers paying with cash or other Ride On fare media.
