Expanding Workforce Transportation Options
CMC CEO, Raj Kudchadkar, joined Anne Arundel County Executive Steve Schuh, Delegate Pam Beidle, and fellow members of the Local Development Council (LDC) to help announce two new transportation options to connect citizens to jobs - the Arundel Mills Jobs Connector and the South County Connector. “As our population grows, so too does our need for transportation options to get our residents to work,” said Schuh. “These new and improved bus routes will be instrumental in job creation, economic development, and reducing congestion.”
