MTA offering free rides on Commuter Bus #425 to Aberdeen Proving Ground


— Baltimore— The Maryland Department of Transportation’s Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) will offer a free ride week on Commuter Bus #425 between Aberdeen and Baltimore from December 12 to December 16, 2016.

The MTA launched the new bus service in October as a part of BaltimoreLink, the transformative transit plan that Governor Larry Hogan unveiled in October 2015. Commuter Bus #425 connects Baltimore to White Marsh, Edgewood and Harford County’s largest employer, Aberdeen Proving Ground (APG). APG workers who hold monthly passes for Commuter Bus #425 can receive a reimbursement from the MTA.

“Commuter Bus #425 is a great new reverse commute service and we want to encourage everyone to take advantage of it,” said MTA Administrator and CEO Paul Comfort. “Once people who drive between Baltimore and Harford County see the ease, convenience and low cost of riding Commuter Bus #425, we are confident that many will choose to leave their cars home every workday.”

The cost to ride Commuter Bus #425 ranges from $3 to $5 depending on the boarding location. The new Commuter Bus #425 operates on the following schedule with several stops on the APG campus:

•Northbound Weekday Morning Service: Departs Wolfe and Monument streets at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore City at 5:10 a.m., 6:10 a.m. and 7:10 a.m., and arrives at APG at 6:50 a.m., 7:50 a.m. and 8:50 a.m., respectively.

•Southbound Weekday Afternoon Service: Operates a similar route in reverse leaving Raritan Avenue and Havre de Grace Street at 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m., arriving to its last stop in Baltimore City at Wolfe and Monument streets at 4:33 p.m., 5:33 p.m. and 6:33 p.m., respectively.
