In January, Montgomery County will offer a new Ride On bus route to connect upcounty commuters with MARC trains.
Route 94, alternatively called “Meet the MARC,” will start on Jan. 13 and run between Clarksburg and the Germantown MARC station. Buses will run on the route during rush hour and will make stops on Clarksburg Road, Snowden Farm Parkway, Little Seneca Parkway and Meadow Mist Road.
The route will have a total of nine Clarksburg stops in the morning and 10 in the evening.
Route 94 replaces the existing Route 94, which ran from the Kingsview Park and Ride lot near Clopper Road to the Germantown MARC station. The last day of service for the current Route 94 was Oct. 18.
The “Meet the MARC” route is one of a series of upcounty Ride On schedule and route changes the county considered earlier this year. Councilman Craig L. Rice asked for the connection to MARC’s Brunswick line after he saw commuters fighting for parking spots in the crowded Germantown MARC station lot.
