Several service changes start today for Montgomery Ride On buses. Those who use Route 10, a combined service from both Ride On and Metrobus, will see the number of buses increase along Randolph Road between New Hampshire Avenue and Parklawn Drive Monday through Saturday, to one approximately every 15 minutes.

On Route 22, the schedule has been updated to better meet MARC trains, while on Route 25, the times between buses have been improved to 15 minutes to eliminate overcrowding.

Buses will also be added to increase service on both Routes 37 and 45.
