Maps & Schedules

Welcome to Prince George's County Transit System - known as "TheBus"!


​"TheBus" runs regular service between Monday and Friday, except on most Federal Holidays. For Martin Luther King Jr. Day, President's Day, Columbus Day and Veteran's Day, the Prince George's County "TheBus" system runs a regular weekday schedule.

​On this page, you can view and download our system map, bus schedules and the NextBus application for real-time arrivals for our buses. ​

Effective Tuesday, September 3, 2019, Prince George's County DPW&T will implement service changes on the Route 20 (Addison Road/Upper Marlboro) to improve travel time from Upper Marlboro to Addison Road Metro and to provide additional morning trips to the Melwood Training Center. To view the new schedule click here.

Effective Monday, October 7, 2019, Prince George's County DPW&T will implement services on the Route 11 (Greenbelt), Route 12 (West Hyattsville), Route 21 (New Carrollton-Upper Marlboro), Route 28 (Woodmore/Largo), and Route 36 (Clinton-Brandywine) and Route 53 (Upper Marlboro)

​On the Route 11, all scheduled departures will advance 10-15 minutes later from the Greenbelt Metro Station after 3pm. On the Route 12, all buses will no longer serve the Cora B. Woods Senior Center and bus stops on 34th Street at Newton Street and Eastern Avenue at Otis Street in Mt. Rainier.

​On the Routes 21 and 28, buses will skip the Peppercorn Place timepoint from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm in order to add more recovery time at the end of the line.

​On the Route 36, the bus will no longer serve the Mattawoman-Beantown MTA Park and Ride Lot and the Pinefield Shopping Center in Waldorf. Instead, the Route 36 will operate between the Clinton Park and Ride Lot and the Brandywine Shopping Center. Passengers seeking to travel further south can transfer to VAN-Go's Brandywine connector route.

​For Route 53, the first trip in the morning will start 15 minutes earlier.

Due to Purple Line construction at the College Park Station, the Route 14 will continue onto Campus Drive after leaving Good Luck Road, instead of making a left turn at MD-201. As a result, bus stops on MD-201 south of Campus Drive/Good Luck Road, and northbound on RIver Road will be skipped. This temporary detour will be in effect from September 2019 to May 2020.
