RideOn Adds New Service From Clarksburg to Germantown MARC Station

January 8, 2019

Montgomery County RideOn began new service from Clarksburg to the Germantown MARC Station on January 6. RideOn Route 75 will now provide service to the Germantown MARC Station during peak periods. At the request of At-Large Councilmember Hans Riemer, the Council added almost $90,000 in the fiscal year 2019 operating budget to fund the new service.

   “Last year Clarksburg residents approached me asking for a reinstatement of bus service to the Germantown MARC Station,” said Councilmember Riemer, who is chair of the Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee and a member of the Transportation and Environment Committee. “Previous service had regrettably been ended due to low ridership, which itself was a product of suboptimal alignment with the MARC schedule. Bus service from this part of Clarksburg to Germantown MARC Station is critically important because there is not nearly enough parking at the station.”

   “Working with these residents, my colleagues on the Council, and RideOn, we were able to fund and design changes to an existing route that will better connect these residents to the MARC system. I am committed to providing reliable and efficient transit options for all residents, from making incremental improvements to RideOn and supporting WMATA to forging ahead on Bus Rapid Transit.”

   RideOn Route 75 now makes stops at the Germantown MARC Station from the Germantown Transit Center via Germantown Road (MD 118) during rush hours. It also provides new service along Sycamore Farm Drive and Seneca Meadows Parkway.
