Express Bus Service May be Coming to Veirs Mill; Metro Could Start Service in January


The Washington Area Metropolitan Transit Authority (Metro) Customer Service and Operations Board Committee approved a proposal to add limited stop Metrobus service on Veirs Mill Road from the Rockville Metrorail Station to the Wheaton Metrorail Station. The service, if approved by the Metro Board in October could begin as soon as January 2016. The Q9 service would operate 12 hours a day with free bus to rail and rail to bus transfers at the Wheaton, Forest Glen and Silver Spring Metro stations. Metro will hold a public hearing about the service in September.
