Public Transportation

For many commuters, public (or sometimes private) transit is the transportation of choice; for others it’s the ideal back-up transportation. Public transit is a dependable commuting option that delivers employees and customers to work and home on a regular schedule.

Public transportation provides access, mobility, choice and opportunity. Nationally, 14+ million people use public transportation on a daily basis and in doing so they reduce congestion and pollution, and stimulate the economy. There are numerous public transit systems serving Anne Arundel County and the greater Washington, DC/Baltimore Region.
