Why in the hell doesn't that bus system run on weekends or holidays? and why are the hours only from 6:30am-7:30pm on almost all the routes? What type of **** is that? It's 2012 and every other bus system in the region operates normally but PG, nah its not even close. I know there are plenty of metrobus routes in PG county but even then it seems like they lack the service one would find in DC or Montgomery county or even Virginia. Buses in PG operate once an hour on most routes during off peak hours. In Montgomery country all buses run every 30 minutes or faster at all times, same with DC. So whats up with PG not funding its public transit properly?

They do it by ridership numbers which is tied into funding. PG is just not as dense and vibrant as the inner suburbs of VA and Montgomery Counties. PG is still mostly suburban sprawl with dilapidated corridors where as places like Alexandria, Arlington, Bethesda, Downtown Silver Spring, have a density that requires more frequent bus services. And places are open later in those other areas. After 9:30pm, mostly everything in PG shuts down. There's no significant nightlife or outdoor cafes open until midnight or later in PG. In College Park, everything is within relative walking distance to campus. I imaging when infill continues across the area, the density will increase, and bus lines will run more frequently.
