CUMBERLAND —  Allegany County government will kick off the “Get to Work” Program on Nov. 12.

The program provides county residents with access to public transportation for the expressed purpose of getting to work at the North Branch Industrial Park for the second and third shifts.

All shifts that start and/or end between noon and 2 a.m. will be considered for the program.

Employees of HunterDouglas, Schroeder Industries, Webstaurant Store and Berry Global will be picked up by Allegany County Transit at their residence, dropped off at various sites throughout the industrial park and will be returned to their home.

A one-way fee of $4 is required for all riders.

Additionally, a $60 punch card can be purchased for a reduced price by contacting the Allegany County Transit offices.

To schedule a ride, call 301-724-1255 between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

For more information about the program, contact Matthew Shipway, workforce development specialist, at 301-876-9527 or

The program is a partnership with a number of community-based agencies, including the Allegany County Department of Social Services, Western Maryland Consortium, Allegany County America Job Center, Goodwill Horizon Industries and Act Personnel Services.

Get to Work is made possible through a Job Access Reverse Commute grant to the county from the Maryland Department of Transportation.
