Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski announced on Wednesday the creation of a free grocery shuttle service in the southeast part of the county.
The pilot shuttle service will launch from the Turner Station community. It will operate through the Baltimore County Department of Public Works and Transportation’s CountyRide, which was developed in response to community concerns about the ability of residents with limited access to transportation to obtain food. The shuttle will take residents to a nearby grocery store and returned after their shopping is complete, according to county officials. The shuttle will even drop off people who live within a 2-mile radius of the Fleming Center at their homes.
