Waldorf, MD– (NOVEMBER 27, 2015) – The Maryland Department of Transportation’s Maryland Transit Administration (MTA), in conjunction with Charles County elected officials, will hold a ribbon cutting to officially open MTA’s new Commuter Bus Park & Ride in Waldorf. 

The $10.5 million facility includes parking for more than 500 vehicles and will accommodate the growing number of Commuter Bus riders in Southern Maryland.

The new facility features an environmentally-friendly “pervious” (porous) concrete that allows rainwater to pass through instead of running directly into drains. Beneath the pervious material, water can seep slowly into the ground and filter naturally.

This reduces the amount of nitrogen and phosphorous that enters the Chesapeake Bay through tributaries.
