Winter Weather Service Modifications
When winter weather strikes, we will do everything possible to keep our scheduled routes running as smoothly as possible. But sometimes, the weather gets too rough. When it does, we may have to temporarily detour from our regular route to travel an alternate route until roads/areas are treated and safe for driving.
Connector Service: Alternate Routes for Winter Weather Emergencies
When the alternate routes are implemented, SOME REGULAR BUS STOPS WILL BE MISSED OR RELOCATED. Please refer to each map and schedule for the snow emergency route. Maps and schedules are available onboard each bus and online. The snow emergency routes are shown with blue snowflakes.
Alternate routes for winter weather emergencies may be implemented for the #10, #50, and #51 for the following roads/areas: Himes Avenue; McCain Drive; Hillcrest Drive; Prospect Plaza Shopping Center.
Brunswick/Jefferson Shuttle: Snow Emergency Route
Please refer to the map and list below for the snow emergency route. The snow emergency route is referenced in blue with snowflakes. In hazardous conditions, the Brunswick/Jefferson Shuttle will operate as follows:
The following stops will be made:
Brunswick House Apartments
Brunswick Shopping Center
Brunswick Crossing Shopping Center
Brunswick Medical Center
The following stops WILL NOT be made:
Brunswick Senior Center
When inclement weather causes hazardous driving conditions, Transit may operate limited service to the Frederick MARC train station.
AM Shuttle Service:
If hazardous driving conditions occur in the morning, AM shuttle service to Point of Rocks will NOT be provided and the Walkersville Meet-the MARC shuttle will be cancelled.
PM Shuttle Service:
If hazardous driving conditions occur in the evening, PM shuttle service for Point of Rocks and Walkersville Meet-the-MARC may be limited to the earliest scheduled trains.
How do I find out about service cancellations or schedule changes?
