Hi,
I am relocating from New Jersey as I have got a job in Beltsville.

I am looking out for places to stay in/near Beltsville. We are a couple and my budget is around $1,200-1,500.

I would like to use public transport to commute.

I am thinking about Laurel and Columbia. Is there public transport from Laurel/Columbia to Beltsville?

Seek your suggestions.

Thank you

Beltsville is a nice area. Try Greenbelt which is also a nice area

Forget Greenbelt. Beltsville or Laurel, preferably Laurel, are good. I would move to Laurel if I were in your situation. I used to live in Powder Mill Village in Beltsville. I would not really recommend it unless you want pet roaches. Laurel has good prices and more shopping. I'm pretty sure Metrobus has a route up and down Route 1.

You should live on Wicomico Street. That way everytime you need to contact the police (which will be often) you can just walk out the door and your right at the station.

I looked at an apartment in Powder Mill Village a long time ago. It was vacant and the dead roaches were everywhere, hundreds of them in every room. This is what they were showing perspective tenants. I'll never forget that. Anyway, I'm sure there's newer and nicer stuff out there. I had good luck in Greenbelt for several years in Charlestown North, right by the lake. It was a nice walk to the shopping area in old Greenbelt. Don't know anything about public transportation in that area but there are busstops everywhere.

Laurel would be a good choice. Laurel has its own bus transit system that goes to Beltsville. We also have Metro Bus out here. It would be about a 15 minute commute if you drove. If you are looking to move into an apartment, there are some developments to avoid, but there are also many to choose from.

Powder Mill Village, eh? You're brave.

I've seen parts of Laurel and Beltsville that look nice.

The public transportation part of your inquiry is going to present you the most difficulty. THere's not a lot of public transportation in the area you are talking about (other than running North/South on US Rte One and East/West on MD Rte. 212 - Powder Mill Road).
