Ride On buses in Montgomery County are operating on a limited schedule Monday and Tuesday.

Montgomery County's Ride On bus system is operating on a reduced schedule following a bus fire last week. County officials say there will be service restrictions today and tomorrow, but the system should be back to normal on Wednesday.

County Executive Isiah Leggett pulled more than two-dozen buses from the system because of safety concerns after the fire.

Last week's bus fire was the seventh fire on a Ride On bus in three years. The county is replacing the buses, which is expected to take until the end of August.
