Ride free to APG Dec. 12-16 with MTA

ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. – The Maryland Transit Administration, or MTA, will offer a free ride week on Commuter Bus #425 between Aberdeen and Baltimore the week of Dec. 12-16.

Commuter Bus #425 connects Baltimore to White Marsh, Edgewood and to Harford County’s largest employer, Aberdeen Proving Ground. According to the Maryland Department of Transportation, APG workers who hold monthly passes for Commuter Bus #425 can receive a reimbursement from the MTA.

“People can be hesitant to change their routine but the free ride week is a great way for commuters to a new mode of transportation without incurring an expense, said Syreeta Gross, APG Commuter Center manager.

Gross said the bus, which originates in downtown Baltimore and stops in White Marsh and at the Edgewood Shopping Center, also connects with Harford Transit and the Water’s Edge Business Park.

“Through the Army Mass Transit Benefit Program, federal employees and active duty military can use up to $255 a month to ride the bus including mass transit connections,” she said, adding that she can assist those needing help figuring out connections.

The APG Commuter Center is located in the lobby of the APG North (Aberdeen) recreation center, Bldg. 3326. For more information, email syreeta.a.gross.ctr@mail.mil; visit the Maryland Transit Administration website at http://www.mta.maryland.gov/; or call 410-539-5000.
