For Immediate Release: Tuesday, July 5, 2022
Beginning Sunday, July 17, the Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will be launching the new Ride On Bus Route 27 to serve Adventist Healthcare White Oak Medical Center and the surrounding Silver Spring area. This new service comes after a public hearing held on Thursday, June 2 which allowed MCDOT to receive input and feedback about the new service, in order to provide the best opportunity for implementing a successful service.
The new route will operate between Hillandale Transit Center and the Tech Road Park and Ride lot with stops along Powder Mill Road, Cherry Hill Road, Plum Orchard Drive, Broadbirch Drive, and Tech Road. The route will have connections with Metrobus, Ride On, and Flash bus routes, as well as other transportation services within the network.
Ride On interiors will continue to be cleaned by the County’s Department of General Services with hospital-grade disinfectant. Bus filter and ventilation systems are also treated with a disinfectant.
All passengers are encouraged to wear face coverings when traveling by public transportation. All MCDOT buses have a supply of face coverings for those who cannot provide their own.
Ride On bus service remains free for all riders until August 2022.
For the most up-to-date service information, riders should follow @RideOnMCT on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram. In addition, information is available at rideonbus.com, by subscribing to receive email alerts at montgomerycountymd.gov/govdelivery, or texting MONTGOMERY RIDEON to 468311 to receive text alerts.
