Prince George’s Co. begins on-demand neighborhood rider service
Starting Monday, the Prince George Department of Public Works and Public Works will explore the potential of its new PGC Link through a small exhibition in the Fort Washington area.
Neighborhood transportation work set up Monday in George’s County, Maryland, allows citizens to keep artwork in their homes without a stand or a list.
The Department of Public Works and Operations Director Prince George wants to explore the potential of his new PGC Link through a small exhibition in the Fort Washington area.
This function will work very differently from the way other people are used. First, there will be no set schedule, viewing location or route – instead, passengers will be able to request a transfer via their TransLoc app available on iOS or Android phones.
Upon requesting a ride, travelers are given a precautionary measure and are able to follow their car on the map with notifications as they approach, similar to Uber or Lyft. See detailed instructions on how to install this app and order it for download.
“DPW & T’s new operations will allow you to travel around other areas,” reads a report on the project. “It comes to your door when you sign up for late-hour commute.”
The first area of the pilot program will be managed by Interstate 495 in the north, Potomac River in the west, Old Fort Road in the south and Palmers Corner, Friendly and Fort Washington Forest areas in the west.
Travelers can travel anywhere between 17 miles – most notably, including National Harbor, MGM Casino, Old Forte Village Shopping Center and Tanger Outlets – but they cannot be picked up or thrown out.
Hours of operation are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Saturday, with only a reservation for those days. Fees are $ 2 paid with this program; SmarTrip cards are not accepted.
