An Important Message from The Washington County Transit Department

Washington County Transit (WCT) is closely monitoring the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. In conjunction with Governor Hogan’s latest order regarding transit services across the state, WCT announces the following service changes effective Friday, March 20, 2020.
 
  • WCT will operate on a weekday only schedule with no Saturday service
  • Transit service operating hours are limited to 6:15 AM – 5:45 PM, Monday – Friday
This decision was not taken lightly as WCT is the primary mode of transportation for many of our passengers. Transit should only be used as a last resort and limited to essential travel only. In light of the recommendations from state and local health officials, we believe this decision is in the best interests of our passengers, employees and the entire community. We will continue to monitor the situation and update the schedule as events dictate. We regret the inconvenience or hardship this may cause to our riders.
 
For more information regarding WCT’s operations, please call 240-313-2750
