Travelers in Harford County can save money on gas and ride Harford Transit LINK buses for free all day on Thursday, June 16, in recognition of National Dump the Pump Day. Harford County’s Office of Economic Development is offering the free rides on fixed routes of the county bus system to promote public transportation as a convenient, low cost alternative to car travel. Public transportation networks can also empower economic growth and community revitalization.
“Harford Transit LINK buses provide vital connections for our local economy and our citizens,” said County Executive Barry Glassman. “I encourage travelers to see for themselves by taking a free ride on June 16, and downloading our free bus tracking app, RouteShout.”
Harford County Transit LINK operates 45 vehicles Monday through Friday with seven routes countywide and into Cecil County. The LINK also connects with MTA/MARC trains, MTA commuter buses, and regional Greyhound, which then connects with main terminals in Baltimore and interstate travel. Key service areas include Harford Community College, the Mary Risteau State Office Building, Upper Chesapeake and Harford Memorial hospitals, Aberdeen Train Station, Harford Mall, Constant Friendship Shopping Center, and Save-A-Lot Shopping Center.
