Wheaton Metro Station Phase 2 of Temporary Bus Bay Relocations to Start on Monday, Nov. 21

by Patrick Herron


Starting Monday, Nov. 21, and lasting for approximately five weeks, sections of the bus loop at the Wheaton Metro Station will be closed for pavement rehabilitation. During Phase 2, Bus Bays F, G, H, J, and K will be closed. Temporary bus boarding locations can be found on the map above. This project will result in smoother bus rides and an improved experience for Metro and Ride On customers. Passengers using Montgomery County’s Ride On buses are encouraged to wear a mask but are no longer required to wear them. Masks are available on all buses for riders who need them.

Fare collection resumed on all Montgomery County buses on August 1. The one-way pre-pandemic fare, which was $2 per ride, is now $1. Monthly passes, which were $45 per rider, are now $22.50
Montgomery County seniors, members of the disability community and students can ride County Ride On buses for free if they qualify for a  Senior SmartTrip CardMetro Disability Card or a Youth Cruiser Card.
Riders can plan trips online with Ride On Real Time.

Bus passengers are encouraged to wear a mask but are no longer required to wear them. Masks are available on all Ride On buses for riders who need them. Bus interiors will continue to be cleaned by the County’s Department of General Services with hospital-grade disinfectant. Bus filters and ventilation systems are also treated with disinfectant.
