Harford Installs First of Many Bus Shelters

Harford County installed its first county-owned bus shelter in Aberdeen last week, launching a long-term plan to install shelters at key bus stops in the county.

The shelters planned by Harford Transit LINK, the county’s bus transportation system, will protect riders from the elements, enhancing safety and comfort for riders within its network of bus routes. Harford Transit LINK serves commuters and other travelers within Harford County and into Cecil County, with connections to regional rail and bus services, and interstate travel. Harford Transit LINK is a division of the Office of Economic Development under the administration of County Executive Barry Glassman.

The Aberdeen MARC Train Station bus stop serves the highest ridership in Harford’s transit system with an annual passenger count of 45,000; the stop is also a major transfer point for six of the LINK’s eight bus routes.

Harford County Transit LINK operates 43 vehicles Monday through Friday with eight routes countywide and into Cecil County. The LINK also connects with MTA/MARC trains, MTA commuter buses, and regional Greyhound, which then connect with main terminals in Baltimore and interstate travel.
