St. Mary’s Transit System (STS) began a new express bus service last month from Lexington Park to Leonardtown with stops in Great Mills and California, as well as a Sunday service to Leonardtown, MD.
The Great Mills Route will operate Monday through Friday and originate at Tulagi Place beginning at 6:30 am and run until 6:23 pm. This route will serve neighborhoods from Lexwood to First Colony shopping center. There will be stops at the major shopping centers along with flag stops in the Great Mills and California area including Victory Woods every hour. This provides Victory Woods residents the opportunity to reach the major shopping centers on Route 235 in less than an hour.
The new St. Mary’s Transit System Leonardtown Route will offer Sunday service from 6 am to 8:53 pm and originate at First Colony Shopping Center. The route links to the St. Mary’s Marketplace. This route heads north on Route 235/Three Notch Road to Route 245/ Leonardtown-Hollywood Road. The bus heads into downtown Leonardtown, the Historic Leonardtown Wharf, and then back to First Colony Shopping Center.
Persons needing ADA para-transit service transportation can contact the STS dispatcher for application information at 301-475-4200, ext. 71120 or 71121.
