Westminster, MD, Monday, August 1, 2022 – The Department of Public Works Carroll Transit System will begin a Saturday Services Pilot Program on Saturday, August 6, 2022. The pilot program will provide data to determine the demand for Saturday transit service in the future.

Past public forums revealed a continued concern from customers and partners regarding the need for public transportation services on Saturdays. This three-month pilot program, operating from August 6, 2022 through October 29, 2022 from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, will evaluate service demand and provide data for future recommendations for Saturday services. The cost will be the same as the current Demand Response fares, which are based on mileage.  Call CTS at 410-386-5550 for more information.

The pilot program will be funded by transit Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) funding with no cost to the Carroll County budget.

More information on the program will be communicated closer to the program's start. For additional information about Carroll Transit, please visit www.carrolltransitsystem.com.
