LARGO, MD – Prince George’s County has added a second bus shuttle that will provide service from the Largo Metro Station to the Suitland Metro Station during the Metrorail shutdown from June 18 – July 3, 2016. The additional shuttle service will provide commuters with a Southern option to access the Green Line similar to the New Carrolton to Greenbelt shuttle the County will be running in the north. The details of the shuttle bus service are as follows:
• The County will provide bus service on weekdays from Monday June 20 through Friday July 1.
• Buses will operate between Largo Metro Station and the Suitland Metro Station.
• The service will be fare-free and express, with no other passenger stops other than the two Metro stations.
• From 6:00AM-10:00AM and 3:00PM-7:00PM we will operate ten (10) buses on the service.
• Between 10:00AM and 3:00PM five (5) buses will run on the service.
During peak hours, operations will be load and go. During non-peak hours, buses will run every 15 minutes. In addition, Prince George’s County will continue to have Street Team members at the Largo Metro Station and the Suitland Metro Station on Monday morning, and signage will direct riders to the shuttles. Even with the addition of the second shuttle, if they must enter the system during peak hours, commuters are still reminded to plan ahead and be prepared to add an additional 1-2 hours to their commute.
