Ocean City has quietly began offering extended term bus passes this summer as a trial program to gauge the public’s interest in them.
“Routinely, we get phone calls from our users to buy a pass for a week, a month or a season. This spring, I listened to the same call, and I figured we had all the materials to make a pass to see how it goes,” said Assistant Superintendent for Transportation Brian Connor during Tuesday’s Transportation Commission.
Now, bus patrons no longer have to count coins before taking a seat on the bus. With the pre-paid bus pass, paying the $3 a day fare makes cruising Coastal Highway that much easier.
