For Immediate Release: 7/18/2012
Ride On to Run Modified Holiday Schedule Tomorrow and Friday

Montgomery County’s Ride On bus system will run a special modified holiday schedule tomorrow and Friday. The schedule is available as a direct link on the County’s homepage at There will be three exceptions to the posted schedule to add additional service. Route 2 will provide service to Walter Reed; Route 38 will provide service to the U.S. Postal Training Academy and Route 54 will provide service to NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology).

The holiday schedule reduces the frequency of service, but all routes will have bus service. The holiday service level is generally about 80 percent of the normal weekday service. Under this modified schedule, some routes are unaffected. First and last trips for the day for each route will be similar to the start and end times for a normal weekday route.

This change in Ride On’s schedule for Thursday and Friday is necessary because all of Ride On’s Champion buses were permanently removed from service today due to safety concerns. Ride On will operate normal Saturday and Sunday schedules this weekend.

Further information about next week’s service will be available later this week.
