Montgomery County Starts New Shuttle To Germantown MARC

A new shuttle service starting this week in Maryland  is meant to help ease congestion in the Germantown area.

The county's Ride On bus system is working with MARC trains in offering the shuttle, which is now running from the Kingsview Park-and-Ride lot at Clopper Road and Kingsview Village Avenue and the Germantown MARC station. The service runs both during morning and afternoon commutes.

Riders using MARC weekly, MARC monthly or TLC ticket can ride for free simply by showing their passes to the bus operator. Other riders will be charged between $1.50 and a $1.70.
