Shuttle Bus Cutting Routes from Pax River

October 31, 2012

Due to budget constraints, the shuttle bus from NAS Patuxent River to Bethesda/Walter Reed National Medical Center, with stops at Washington Navy Yard and Washington Reagan National Airport will be ending on Nov. 1. Beginning on Nov. 1, the shuttle will make twice daily trips to Reagan airport only.

“This is a service we wish we could continue to provide but can no longer afford to,” said Capt. Ted Mills, NAS Patuxent River commanding officer. “We will continue to take care of our active duty service members. I know this affects family members and retirees negatively and I’m sorry for that. If we can offer this service again in the future, we’ll make every effort to do so.”

For additional information, contact Gary Younger, NAS Patuxent River public affairs, 301 757-6748.

    Another dig into the retiree survival – first the clinic/hospital closes and now no transit to Bethesda – who do we thank for this?
