Celebrate The Season Aboard The MDOT MTA Holiday Bus


Receive a Free Ride and Track Santa with the Transit App

Continuing a 41-year tradition to help spread holiday cheer and goodwill, the Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) is offering free rides on its Holiday Bus, featuring Santa Claus and his elves.

The Holiday Bus operates weekdays on various CityLink and LocalLink bus routes until Friday, December 20, 2019. Passengers will receive candy canes and greetings from Santa, and will enjoy festive holiday music during the ride.

“During the holidays, we look forward to thanking our customers and wishing them the best of the season,” said MDOT MTA Administrator Kevin Quinn. “There’s something magical about the Holiday Bus that assures big smiles for everyone who’s lucky enough to catch one.”

Although Santa cannot reveal the exact location and schedule of the Holiday Bus, MDOT MTA customers can track it using the Transit App, which provides real-time information for CityLink, LocalLink, Express BusLink buses, along with Commuter Bus across the region. For information on the Transit App and details for free downloading, go to mta.maryland.gov/transit.

Customers can also follow MDOT MTA on Facebook at facebook.com/mtamaryland and on Twitter @mtamaryland for clues on where the Holiday Bus will be located each day.
