New Public Bus Route to Serve Dunkirk Region Beginning Sept. 30

PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. (Aug. 30, 2013) -– Calvert County’s Public Transportation Division will begin a new northern county bus route Monday, Sept. 30, bringing accessible, affordable bus service to areas from Dunkirk to Huntingtown.

Running Monday through Friday, the new route allows easy access to shopping, healthcare, employment and more in northern Calvert County, including the Dunkirk Town Center, Dunkirk District Park and Fairview Library. Destinations served by the new route include the Sunderland Park & Ride, Skinners Turn Road, Grovers Turn Road, Mt. Harmony Road and the town centers of Huntingtown, Owings and Dunkirk. At the Sunderland Park & Ride, riders can connect to the county’s other northern bus route leading to Chesapeake Beach and North Beach.

All Calvert County public transportation routes operate through the use of designated reference points for timing the route and the “flag system.” Riders must flag down the bus and can board anywhere along the route where the driver deems it safe to pull over.

One-way fares on the new route are $1.50 for adults age 18 to 59 and 50 cents for youth ages 7 to 17, adults age 60 and over, and those with a valid disability or a Medicare card. Children age 6 and younger ride for free. Full-day passes and value cards with preset denominations are also available.

Information on the complete bus route, fares and passes, commuter bus connections, service for the disabled and more is available online at or by calling the Public Transportation Division at 410-535-4268.
