WASHINGTON - One week after the first stretch of the InterCounty Connector opens two new bus routes will begin along the toll road.

The ICC opens to traffic on Feb. 22.

A week later, on March 1, the Maryland Transit Administration introduces ICC bus routes, 201 and 202. Both will begin at the Gaithersburg Park and Ride and follow Phase 1 of the ICC to Shady Grove Metro station and the Norbeck Park and Ride, where the ICC ends for now.

From there, Route 201 will make stops at the Burtonsville Park and Ride and Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport's Southwest and International terminals before ending at the BWI MARC/Amtrak station.

Route 202 will make stops at the Savage MARC station and the National Security Agency before ending at Fort Meade.

Both services will be free for the first two weeks. After that, the fare will be $5 for a one-way trip.
