The County Commissioners and the Maryland Department of Transportation/Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT/MTA) are encouraging public input on a proposed VanGO Transit Operations and Maintenance Facility. An open house meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 20 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Waldorf Jaycee Community Center (3090 Crain Highway, Waldorf). MDOT/MTA staff will be available to answer questions.
The public can stop by anytime during the open house to meet with project staff, view informational display boards, and provide comments on the proposed site. The new facility will allow the VanGO service to expand operations by providing parking for 60 buses, on-site fuel, bus wash areas, and staff parking. Additionally, the project includes a 20,000-square-foot maintenance and operations building.
After studying various locations and their impacts, the Board of Commissioners selected a five- to 10-acre portion of the county-owned property on Piney Church Road—directly across from the Regency Furniture Stadium. Environmental studies and conceptual design are anticipated to be complete in December, after which time the schedule will be determined by available funding.
