(November 03, 2011)—Commuters will be getting an easier ride to Washington, D.C. on additional buses from Charles County, approved by the Board of Public Works on Wednesday.

Candice Kelly, the president of the Charles County Board of Commissioners, presented the $2,243,277 proposal to expand the current contract with Hanover-based Dillon’s Bus Service for commuter buses between Charles County and Washington, D.C. It increases the state’s contract with Dillon’s to a total of $26,297,892.

The expansion adds 12 new “express routes” between Waldorf and Washington, D.C., a bus route that is getting more and more crowded. Kelly said that 62% of Charles County residents leave the county for work. The expanded routes will serve 800 more people, she said.

“We’re seeing a lot of growth,” Kelly said.
