ICC buses start Tuesday

By Luke Rosiak

Two bus routes on the initial segment of the Intercounty Connector will begin running Tuesday between Gaithersburg and Fort Meade and BWI.

As the Post's Robert Thomson reported, for the first two weeks, the buses will be free. After that, a one-way trip will be $5.

Route 201 will operate seven days a week, with 14 daily round trips between Gaithersburg and BWI Marshall Airport. The Maryland Transit Administration says the 47-mile trip should take about 75 minutes and will stop at Gaithersburg Park and Ride, Shady Grove Metro, Norbeck Park and Ride, Burtonsville Park and Ride, BWI and the BWI rail station.

Route 202 will operate weekdays, with three morning trips, three afternoon trips and one midday trip between Gaithersburg and the NSA and Fort Meade. The MTA says the 46-mile trip should take about 75 minutes and will stop at the Gaithersburg Park and Ride, Shady Grove Metro, Norbeck Park and Ride, Savage MARC train station, the NSA and Fort Meade.

The Fort Mead service is intended to help alleviate congestion related to the Base Realignment and Closure plan.

"The Fort Mead (sic, Meade) service is intended to help alleviate congestion related to the Base Realignment and Closure plan."

Nonsense! If you believe this post hoc rationalization, you probably also believe the ICC was built to create jobs.
