In Case You Missed it!

On October 2nd, County Executive Ike Leggett, County Council Vice President Hans Riemer and Department of Transportation Director Al Roshdieh launched the new, limited stop, Ride On extRa rush hour service on MD 355 that will be free during the month of October. The service provides many passenger amenities that promote comfort, including low-floor boarding, free WiFi, USB charging ports, padded seats and bus stops beautifully enhanced by Arts on the Block Apprentice made mosaics!

Ride On and MCDOT’s Department of Transportation Engineering have developed a wonderful partnership with AOB. A few years ago, these young artists created mosaics for some of Ride On’s bus stop walls and now young artists from the Apprentice Artists program have designed unique mosaic medallions for each of our Ride On extRa bus stops. Check out the coverage here!
