A public hearing on the proposal will be held from 8 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 14, at the Motor Vehicle Administration Branch Office at 18306 Colonel Henry K. Douglas Drive in Hagerstown.
In the event of bad weather, the hearing would be held from 8 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the branch office.
If the cuts are made, three lines would run from Hagerstown to Shady Grove in the morning and three in the afternoon, said Jerry Korzybski, a customer services officer.
Trips No. 703 and 707, which depart the MVA park-and-ride lot in Hagerstown at 5:30 a.m. and 6:20 a.m., would instead depart from the Francis Scott Key Mall in Frederick.
Trips No. 704 and 708, which depart Shady Grove at 5:10 p.m. and 6 p.m., would no longer carry passengers to the park-and-ride in Hagerstown, but would stop at the FSK Mall in Frederick.
The four runs that would be eliminated under the proposal have averaged between three and eight riders a day from June to October, Korzybski said.
The three remaining morning commuter runs from the park-and-ride in Hagerstown would depart at 5 a.m., 5:50 a.m. and 6:45 a.m., Korzybski said.
The three remaining afternoon commuter runs that would carry passengers to Hagerstown would depart Shady Grove at 4:50 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6:40 p.m., he said.
