Per Montgomery County: The Montgomery County Department of Transportation (MCDOT) will adjust Ride On bus schedules starting Sunday, May 7, to improve rider experience and efficiency based on ridership. Three routes including 1620, and 26 will have running time adjustments to improve on-time performance. No other routes will undergo changes. The new schedules will be available at and in print at various locations.

Throughout the year, ridership data and on-time performance are monitored regularly to identify routes that could achieve increased efficiency with schedule updates, to better serve our riders.
