[ARCHIVED] Route Changes to County Ride

Transit Facebook Post April 8

As of Wednesday, April 8, all fixed routes will be transitioning to a demand service only. What this means for our ridership is that while there will not be a bus making timed stops along these routes, you will still have the ability to get from one location to another, as long as your needed transportation is for essential travel only. We ask that you call in to our office at 410-758-2357 with as much notice as you can and we will have one of our demand buses meet you to take you to your desired destination. The locations where we are picking you up from and delivering you to must both be locations that the fixed route bus would regularly be passing. We are making this transition to ensure a higher degree of safety for both our clients and our drivers.

As we ask all of our employees as well as visitors to any of the county buildings, if you have any flu-like symptoms (fever or chills, cough, sort throat, shortness of breath, temperature of 100.4 or above) or have been in close contact with anyone with those symptoms or a diagnosis of COVID-19, we ask that you please refrain from utilizing County Ride until you are cleared by a doctor. Otherwise, we will be happy to transport you. Please make sure that you are practicing appropriate social distancing and CDC recommended cleanliness and disinfecting practices while riding with us.

We realize that during this difficult time, County Ride may be the only way you have to reach urgent medical appointments, procure needed groceries and supplies, or to reach essential employment locations. County Ride is dedicated to remaining a resource that our county and its residents can rely on.
