Ride On’s Ridership Increases in April and May

The Division of Transit Services reports that Ride On’s ridership increased 3.3 percent in April, 2013 compared to April 2012 and three percent this May over last May.

Ride On Real Time makes it even easier to use transit by providing real-time information on bus arrivals using the internet, texting, a smart phone or mobile applications (apps) for iPhones or Android phones.

The real-time information is tied to a unique identification (ID) number on each of the County’s 4,800 bus stops. The ID numbers are used by the real time system to pinpoint a passenger’s location and give arriving bus times at that stop.

More information about Ride On Real Time and Ride On is available on the County’s website or by calling 311 (240-777-0311 outside Montgomery County) or TDD/TTY 301-251-4850 Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
