Westminster, MD, Monday, November 8, 2021 – Effective Tuesday, November 9th, Carroll Transit System (CTS) will re-open three (3) TrailBlazer routes: Westminster Black 1, Westminster Purple 1 and Taneytown Green. All other routes and services will continue to be suspended through Friday, November 12th, with services anticipated to resume in more capacity Monday, November 15th.

Out of an abundance of caution, these service interruptions are to protect both staff and riders from close contact exposure.  The system will be re-evaluated on Friday November 12th and services will re-open as drivers become available. Riders already scheduled for rides during this period will be notified by CTS representatives directly. 

Any extension to service interruptions as of Friday, November 12th will be communicated respectively.

As a reminder, all CTS drivers and riders must continue to follow the Transportation Security Administrations (TSA) orders requiring a mask or facial covering to board a CTS vehicle, regardless of vaccination status. Facial coverings must stay in place for the entirety of the trip, including entering and exiting the vehicle. CTS reminds all riders to wash your hands, cover your cough and sneeze, and if you are feeling sick, been in contact with anyone with COVID-19, or running a high temperature, please stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus.

If services are adjusted further due to COVID-19, notices will be posted on our website and on all buses. Passengers are encouraged to email CTS with questions (cts@carrollcountymd.gov).
