For Immediate Release: Wednesday, April 10, 2024

Ride On Flex service, currently operating in Wheaton/Glenmont and Downtown Rockville, allows users to request a vehicle to pick them up and drop them off within a specified zone. Expected wait times range between 10 to 20 minutes. Riders with disabilities are picked up at their homes and others at the nearest intersection. Flex connects to regional transit hubs and provides local connectivity for short trips. Fare is $1, as are all County buses.

MCDOT is seeking to expand the Ride On Flex on-demand bus service to Germantown, Poolesville, Aspen Hill, and other areas. The County is asking residents to fill out this survey to provide feedback on the Ride On Flex service and expansion. The survey will be available until Friday, April 12.
